Sometimes she sank, sometimes she swam,
Until she cam to the miller’s dam.

  1. So atmospheric – there’s something about the place that takes me back to my own childhood. Fantastic use of the recurring shape of the bridge in the foreground and then again in the background to compose the shot and draw me into the space.

  2. This shot reminds me of those first moments in Lord of the Rings, where Gandalf is making his way through Hobbiton, the lush grass, beautiful streams, peaceful and content. The looming bridge makes me want to duck under and follow the water out of shot. Great snap!

  3. I love this “hiking/scenic” series! You make me want to go walking every day!

    In the Hamilton, Ontario, area, there are over a dozen waterfalls, some really really pretty. And they’re not over-photographed, like Niagara. You and your camera should go and do a waterfall series!

    • I have, but I need to go again. I’ve gotten a better camera since the time I did a waterfall grouping. AND I know where there are even more (I’ve been researching). I am working on getting the f-stop set in a manner that will allow me to have a long shutter release without causing the rushing water to be too “brilliant”. You can read these things till you’re blue in the face, but nothing comes close until you start experimenting with your camera to get it right! Thank you for reminding me, I still need to get out there and do this!

  4. Thank you all for the very kind and warm comments, I enjoy them all.
