Canon EOS REBEL XS, Promaster 19-35 lens @ 27mm, ISO 100, f/14, 0.5 seconds
  Sunday was a successful jaunt down River Rd because I redeemed myself from the 40 or so images I took the week before that weren't in focus. I re-visited the same location and came out of there with a couple of satisfying shots.
  This particular image is a merging of two images so that I could get the large rocks on the right side of the frame in the shot. I had not realized that I had visited this spot last fall until I was looking at archived images and recognized the rock formations. The water levels last fall were not nearly as high as they are right now so the water flow was much better this time around.
  Even though the river was about twice as wide as you see in the shot, most of the water was crashing against the rocks on the opposite side of the river creating wonderful cascading action over those rocks. Wanted to get a closer vantage point to those rocks but the water flow was so great it would have been a dangerous walk across. Especially with my camera in tow.


  1. Nice work. I like the greens and the cool feel this image imparts.

  2. Wow, Jerry, you really give us an impression of pretty much standing right in the middle of the river here. Love the low slung perspective here, really gives a sense of drama & power!

  3. Nice long exposure. The green tones are great.
