Water flows, drawing the eye with an irresistible pull. When I compose an image, the water movement and wave patterns are my design elements. Wisps of water, like brush strokes, define the photograph with winding, twisting and explosive lines.
My use of extended exposure enhances the highlights, and allows the colors of browns, greens and yellows of rocks underneath to be revealed, contrasting with the deep blue of the skies overhead. The river’s current moves through the frame, and I use the knowledge I’ve gained from studying the water’s flow to capture the mood.
