The Conococheague


I took this photograph with my lens practically right up on the water at a point in the creek where there is a manmade very low waterfall (I don’t know the technical word for it). Slow shutter speed and balancing act on rocks account for the interesting blur that resulted.

Here is the same image in black and white:

  1. Love the blues in the first shot…looks like either a wonderful abstract painting OR even a great fabric pattern for a slinky cocktail dress! LOL

  4. Can really feel the motion, and glad to see that you kept your balance. The blues and greens speak to me much more eloquently (and I really like what they’re saying) than the purples and blacks.

    • I’m glad you can hear water and color, too, Gary. 🙂

      • So am I! Why can’t more folks hear these simple, elemental communications? What a gift to be able to listen and take the time to try to understand!

  5. Lovely! I also love the cocktail dress comparison, that’s perfect. One in shimmering colour, the other the little black number—both with sequins.

    (The proper name for the little waterfall would probably be weir.)

  7. Love the color version. The B&W seems a bit too dark for my taste.

  10. I really like the colour image, it looks more alive… more organic than the black and white one.

  12. i like what you did here / there – can’t choose really – although, before the thinking started, from the heart, the black it was – is really
