It can be hard putting our emotions in words, at least I find it so.
Occasionally, something about a scene just epitomizes a certain feeling, both visually and viscerally for me, and this is one of them.
I’ve called this image ‘sadness’.
I get a bit of a kick out of risky maneuvers when I’m photographing! I fear it’ll all end it tears and camera-catastrophe one day, but until then …… 🙂
This photograph was taken in DuPont State Forest in North Carolina, laying flat with my camera on a rock at the base of a waterfall, with the water rushing beneath and around me! It was so exhilarating — everything was blocked out by the noise and splashing, and I loved the feeling of motion from those torrents of water going past. Every now and again a heart-stopping extra surge came over the top, almost reaching me … but just not quite. At least not that day!
It’s funny how the mind affects the way you view things.
I’ve walked past this place a hundred times during the day when, in reality, it looks nothing like this. But each time, in my head, this is what I see.
The spot always reminds me of an enchanted dell — somewhere that little imps or spirits might dwell, if you go in search of them! I decided to try and recreate what I imagined into this scene, by photographing the location at night!
