It Just Takes One Rock

I spend a lot of time on the river, mostly with a flyrod, looking at the water and trying to find that right spot. You see shots like these everywhere of really blurry water with an anchor somewhere to fix your eye on. That’s fine, every photographer should have one of those photos in their library. Just make it a good one. Look hard for that spot that has a good current, the right color, some character, a good anchor that is bright, vibrant and catches your eye. Really try and find that awesome blurry water shot. It takes time to find it but that’s why we become photographers, for the journey.

Black and White Icebergs

It’s not really Fall anymore but it’s not technically Winter yet either. They say it’s going to be another year of record cold temps just like the last couple have been. Considering that Spring was late and Fall was skipped, I’m thinking that might be a pretty accurate guess. The temps are still staying above freezing which is keeping moving bodies of water unfrozen but the snow and ice that form on top of the rocks in the creeks are creating some interesting icebergs. These chunks of snow are great for black and whites. Simple natural elements, the darks of the water and the lights of the snow make for some fun shooting opportunities.
