Cascade Abstracts (1) and (2)

­­­­­I have always been fascinated by water, and especially moving water in all its forms.    My small garden contains two water features  – a water wall with a very short stream, and a fish pond fed by a cascade.  Both capture the constantly changing patterns created by weather conditions, sunlight and passing clouds.  The visual delights are also accompanied by the relaxing sound of running water.  They should, and do, provide an endless source for creative expression.­­­­  But they also cause frustration!

Perhaps belatedly, I have come to accept that it is just not possible to replicate fully via the camera lens the totality of the live experience.  It is more sensory multi-dimensional, more transitory and, indeed, more personal than might generally  be appreciated.  Technical adjustments  –  such as shutter speeds  – can provide an interpretation but not a solution to the dilemma.

However, ‘freeze-frame’  images provide a kaleidoscope of material suitable for development as abstract compositions.  I intend to post a selection of these from time to time under as ‘Cascade Abstracts’.
