Water is a dynamic subject and it evokes many different feelings, not only is it mesmerising but it also has the capacity of power and strength, peace and tranquility and at the same time it has the ability to be soothing and calm.
During my travels I have come across many waterfalls and I am always magnetised by the sheer beauty of the water cascading over the rocky precipices . I love the rhythmic melody of the crystal clear waters harmonically lunging and moving with purpose and direction to a new found freedom. Sometimes trickling slowly and other times roaring like a raging lion.
I enjoy the dancing rainbow of colours that penetrate the cool waters and twist and swirl creating a maze of abstract designs. The intermingling waters creating a silver foamy mist sparkling and spraying, wild and enthusiastic.
As a photographer whatever the time of year a waterfall can offer many opportunities to capture, It may be a slight trickle or a vigorous surge but the colour of the rocks, the surrounding flora and fauna it all contributes to create a representation of that moment in time.
