One evening, with a heavy Heart, I decided to go to a creek to photograph some waterfalls at twilight. I needed to be around water to get into my Calm Space. My Life was in a whirl so I sought solace in Mother, as I always do.
I started taking photographs from the bridge and because of the guard rails being in the way of a clear shot, I had to use my tripod as a unipod for some of the images. To steady the entire ensemble I braced my camera right on the guard rail itself. I also had to wait to compress the shutter when the bridge was clear of all traffic. It was quite the feat and in looking back I don’t know how I did it. I was so focused in what I was doing, the heaviness of Heart abated.
When I shot all I wanted from the bridge, I packed my gear and headed for the actual creek bed, where I knew were more waterfalls. I didn’t realize it at the time, but the combination of pigmented water from a recent rain, and the light of the setting sun, gave me some spectacular colors in my images. I couldn’t believe the Gift Mother gave me when I opened the images in my editor. My jaw dropped. As I think yours will as well.
Please enjoy the following images of absolute pure magic. I am not exaggerating. See for yourself. I present to you,
(The first 5 photos were taken from the bridge, with number 4 & 5 photos using my tripod as a unipod.)
