Playing with light and water

After I posted Monday's blog about freezing the water action at the brink of a waterfall, I mulled over this thought: what if our busy lives were frozen throughout the day by stop action photography? What would we see about ourselves and the people and places we were interacting with?

The pictures for this blog are less philosophical. I just want to encourage those of you with cameras to take your time along a slow moving stream and see the possible patterns. One tip: shoot even if you do not actually see a pattern in the water; you will be amazed at the scenes your camera captures that you were unable to detect with your eyes. Taking pictures like these is similar to a kaleidoscope--you never know how or what the colors, textures, and light will form. These pictures were all taken within a ten yard distance along the Firehole River in Yellowstone.
