Water color

Fall reflection

Sage’s Ravine, Sheffield, Massachusetts.

I was back in the upper part of this spectacular ravine today doing more trail work.

The light and the fall colors were so intense in this pool I stopped to take a few pictures. The water was too still and to me, the reflected seen had no interest as it was simply the far bank of trees turned upside down.

There was no little dog to splash around in the pool to make waves so I tossed in a small rock just to mix things up. I took four pictures in rapid succession hoping one of them would have just the right amount of water movement in it. To me, the water movement gives this image a painterly feel.

Note: this image is straight out of the Fuji X70. I ran it through Lightroom to downsize it for uploading but made no adjustments at all.

    1. Thanks Gary. I was very pleased with how the camera caught this motion. I don’t fully understand the process and because of that I’ll continue to take multiple shots to hope I freeze the right one, but that’s easy to do in the digital world.
