Isn’t it amazing how many ways water can behave and look! It can quietly reflect, violently thrash rocky shorelines, gurgle while it swirls down the drain, evaporate and reappear as clouds, then drip back down to earth as rain. There are more — fog, mist, ice, steam, drops, etc. How many more can you think of?
Think how many ways we use it. Are there any other elements that are as versatile as water?
This old barn serenely rides the crest of a hill in Warrior, Alabama. I have photographed it many times of the past twenty years or more. This time the colors were enriched by rain and the setting sun.
These images are from my morning walk a couple of weeks ago at Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs. Crane’s Roost is one of my favorite municipal parks for walking and photography. No matter how many times I go there, I always see some reflection, scene, angle, or quality of light that begs to be photographed. On this walk I had fun learning the settings and operation of my new Fuji X-T1 with 27mm lens attached.
A couple enjoys an afternoon boat ride on the lake at Central Park. The harmony and balance of the other elements in the picture — the water, trees, and buildings– suggest peace, even though the lady appears to be cold.
