Snowy River
« on: March 14, 2023, 06:18:09 pm »

...no, not that Snowy River, the Australian one of movie and TV fame. This one is the snowy Deschutes River, of fishing renown, in central Oregon. It was part of my snowy-photo-capturing adventure during last Friday's snowstorm.

Very nice. Good marks all around (composition, shutter speed, processing). :)

The movement in the water is magical!
Super shot, Arlen.

Excellent shot Arlen and fantastic processing - and even though I have heard it said by some photographers, that you should never shoot a waterfall or river flowing away from you, this shot proves that old fallacy is a load of bunkum. So again, excellent shot!

Yes so do I as well Matt and believe the first time I heard it said, was in one of MR's original video journals from long ago and stated by Michael himself...

Thanks a bunch to all of you for the more than generous comments. I did have fun with this one, though the heavy wet snow that was falling did make capturing it a challenge.

Thanks Dave, but I'm afraid we can't use this image to debunk the "old saw". The water here was flowing towards me. You can see clues in the water. The abrupt, bright edges of the whitewater are on the upstream side where the water gets suddenly pushed up over the rocks, and then trails off on the (near) downstream sides. And there are some small drop-offs on the rocks at the upper end of the rapids, where the water is lighter on top of the rocks, with darker troughs immediately below. But you did make me look again to confirm that the clues were there, and that the opposite orientation wasn't equally plausible. Still, I can see that it could be envisioned that way.  :)
And in general I do agree with that old advice, though I do have some images looking downstream that I think came out pretty well.

Yes,  lovely,... having the water come towards oneself most always brings such unique light.

Arien,... you are most welcome.

Reminds me of Chipiwa falls, Ontario, ,... once shot,... but not positioned too look upstream. Should have,... next time "up stream" perspective.

Sorry,.. the name is Chippewa Falls.  To many years have gone past me.
