Underwater

April 27, 2014  •  1 Comment

There are a lot of waterfalls in Tennessee, more than 500. I shared a phone photo last week of Burgess Falls, near Cookeville. This photo using my camera and a longer lens is a view of a portion of the falls, captured at 1/800 second.

I noticed that there was green under the water, a shrub or even a tree. Most of the year, this portion of the precipice is not covered with water. But this day, it was underwater. I took a series of photos, experimenting with what happens when the time of the exposure is lengthened. The photo below was shot at 1/8 of a second.

I admit that most of the time I am drawn to the blurred water. I realize some viewers are not. The top photo emphasizes the water while the lower photo draws attention to what is underneath, I think. There is power in the upper photo, poetry in the lower. I enjoy both views.

Love Tennessee waterfalls! Your pictures make me homesick for TN. Dave's brother (Sparta, TN) and his sister (Memphis) are scheduled to be with us later this month if all goes according to plan. Maddy and Dylan are both playing ball this summer so we will be spending most of our summer at the ball park. Hope to get to TN this fall. I love autumn in TN. Love your reading your posts and pictures!!!
