The healing touch of water
the coolness of the blue
all with one Purpose
to Heal the Heart that’s blue.
(This image is my first panorama photograph taken with my Samsung Galaxy S6 Phone. This is what Blossom Falls looked like last evening when I was shooting pictures. It was taken when the light was fading rapidly, and that being said, I was extremely pleased to see how well this photograph turned out. Does anyone see where my first image was taken? If you do, this will now give you a good idea what 300mm shooting range looks like when I shoot long exposure photography.)
Now on to my stories …
Actually running to beat the darkness of twilight, I drove to Blossom Falls in Elma, NY with about 1/2 hour of daylight left to shoot. I was in the mood for waterfalls yet all day long I had waited for high winds to die down so I could go, and finally just as the sun began to set it did settle down. (Do check out the link above. It shows you the actual waterfalls in real time.)
You should have seen me! I had to wait one hour after taking my Thyroid medication to eat, and just as the final minute of that one hour was up, I literally gulped down a sandwich, chewing and swallowing as fast as I could as I got dressed. (not a recommended way to eat!) Flying out the door with all my equipment ready to go, I was off!
Now perhaps some of you might be asking why I did not take my medication earlier in the day. Wellllll, good question. You see, I was told on Thursday that my medication would be ready for pick up Friday morning. And no, I had no medication left at home to take. By the time I arrived at the pharmacy it was 2:30pm, the time I usually take this med. Lo and behold, I was told it was not ready but would be in 10 minutes. The 10 minutes turned into 45 minutes and by the time I got back home I took this med one hour later then I normally do. I didn’t even get an apology, just a “thank you for waiting.” You really do not want to know my thoughts on that!
So getting back to the original story ….
Drats if traffic wasn’t heavy on the very old steel bridge I stood upon, setting up my tripod and camera. I had no time to wait for a lull in traffic due to waning light, so as I held my breath I began to shoot my long exposures on a bridge that yes was shaking. (Don’t ask why I hold my breath when I shoot long exposures. I honestly couldn’t tell you.)
None of my shots came out perfect due to the vibration from traffic, but I still managed to get some stunning shots. If you who are photographers look closely, you will see the shaking in this image. Go ahead look if you want to but I don’t really care. It is beautiful just as is.
And, as I stood there waiting for my long exposures to finish I allowed my Soul to drink deeply the Beauty set out before my adoring eyes. I could feel the tension melt away and my Heart that has still been heavy regarding my Dad and Molly, lift to the place of Peace. My Intention is that the very same happens to those of you who are weary in spirit and heavy in Heart. May you be refreshed as I was. I also hope you enjoyed my stories! (smile)
