Water wall in autumn sunlight

I imagine this as a large wall panel (perhaps 6 feet wide) on a white wall.

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’.

More Pond Images

It is interesting to compare the black and white images below with the colour image, Pond Abstract, posted recently.  All of the shots were taken within seconds of each other.  It seems to me that the monochrome pictures convey a sense of energy and movement, which is the essence of these photos.  The colour image, I find more static but with  a strong ‘pattern’ interrelationship between shapes and colours.

Life with bubbles

The fountain in my small garden pond creates constantly changing bubble patterns.   Not only do the patterns change but so too do the colours, depending on the sky above, the activity beneath the water surface and the reflections from the surrounding trees and buildings.

Pond fountain

My small garden pond  –  and it is very small  –  is a constant source of pleasure.  The sound of running water, the changing patterns of bubbles, the flashes of gold from the fish, the leaves and flowers of the water lilies etc, all combine to soothe the frenzied brow and create a relaxing diversion from the busy world.  High on this ‘purr list’ is the sight of water gushing joyfully from the fountain.  In this photo I have attempted to capture an impression of the moment rather than a freeze-frame replica.
