Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 19mm, ISO 100, f/14, 0.5 sec.
  This afternoon was the first time in a long time that I have been able to get out and adventure down River Rd. The last time I was down this way, the photos I took were all out of focus so I returned to the scene of the crime to correct my errors.
  I determined that the last effort's issues were with my tripod not being anchored very well combined with a strong current. I made sure that today everything was stable and not moving.
  One of the main reasons I was drawn back to this spot were these brightly colored rocks that were in this part of the river. They were red and orange and very cool. Just emphasizes my love for the rocks along this river and how they are defined by the water and each one is unique whether it is as large as a two story building or as small as a football.
  The first set of shots I took I really focused on these awesome rocks. Even in the wide panorama's I did, the rocks were what I emphasized.  This shot, however, was my favorite because of the formation these rocks made together with the water either flowing over or around them. I zoomed up on them as to not be distracted by the rest of the large scale scenery.
  Nothing special about the processing. Just a crop to take out unnecessary elements.


  1. Man, I could use some on the rocks right now...

    Nice shot BTW, that water looks cold! I like how it's like slightly frosted glass in a way.

  2. This turned out wonderfully! Love the details and tones which are contrasted by the fluidity of the running water!! Awesome shot here, Jerry, I really love it!
