High Water Everywhere

February 2019

A Cascading Old Man's Cave Creek. 

Slipping out early on a mid-week day after several continual days of rain gave rise to many contemplative locations. This classic view held sway for me for quite some time as I paused to reflect on the evolution of these hollows from innumerable floods such as this. The minute sands being washed away can be seen in the brown streaks of these waters. Capturing this scene with a long exposure creates a perception the mind does not realize from our normal vision's rapid slices of time. The milky feel of the cascading waters and the saturated landscape reflecting hues, colors amidst shadows, lines, forms and shapes. The damp cool air and subtle sounds created memories that are instilled in my being.
