OK, see … I can explain. It’s not that I was just photographing raindrops although technically there were raindrops being photographed. It’s kind of complicated…maybe you could just give me a minute to explain. Last January I found myself a little frustrated with my photography. Sure I had some success with my images but it…
Finally I reached the bottom of the hill where the drainage from the silt ponds flowed. I couldn’t get this vantage point from the drone. I just stood there as the story played out in front of me. A stream, Cabin Branch, flowed from my right to my left and it went from clear water to muddy muck. The silt ponds appeared to be failing or were overflowing – all that silt was running into the stream, clouding it up and running down hill to the county resevoir. I told myself, I guess I have my image – the clearing of the fields and forest had indeed impacted the water way.
Whenever I get stuck or whenever I think the light is gone, I turn around for a new view of things. Frequently the change of perspective works. You just have to be open enough to try a different view.
