A Year of Waterfalls
I joked with a friend that I had photographed so many waterfalls this year I was going to publish a waterfall coffee table book. My seasonal trips to the Catskills, a Spring trip to Rickett’s Glen and Autumn trips to New Hampshire and the Poconos provided me with a lot of opportunities to photograph various falls, cascades and babbling brooks in 2010. This was a lucky year for me in local juried photography exhibits winning 3 first place awards, one second place award and a merit award. I received my most recent award from Center for the Arts in Southern New Jersey (CFA) for a B&W waterfall image. I have included it here along with some images from the Poconos. When photographing waterfalls I like to explore the possibility of representing a ‘sense of place’ instead representing the waterfall alone. Being able to achieve this of course depends upon the scene and surroundings. I always use a tripod and slow shutter speed to capture the feeling of moving water. In my most successful images I sometimes think I can hear the water too!
