Falling water on Thayer Brook

Falling Water on Thayer Brook

Thayer Brook, Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, south of Kent, Connecticut.

Took a short hike south on the AT from Rt. 341 to Thayer Brook. It didn’t look like it was going to be a good day for pictures but the brook had plenty of water in it (tough to cross) and I found a few small falls that looked like they might be interesting.

To me, what makes this kind of falling water interesting are the surface patterns the water makes as it moves over rocks underneath and the foam it makes as it hits the bottom of a fall. Those shapes are fantastic if you can freeze them and frankly, and honestly, I’m never absolutely sure how to get what I want. These images are as close as I’ve ever come to getting what I want which is evidence of movement and turbulence.
