Over the Basalt

Posted by

One of the hallmarks of Latourell Falls is the basalt rock face.

A JOYOUS ALL SAINTS DAY to each of you. It is a great day to reflect upon, and give thanks for, the great saints of the photographic community. Who are those photographers who have significantly shaped your photographic journey?

Very nice setting indeed. The foliage, intensely green, contrasts beautifully with the black rocks and the smoothy water, like a milk fall, adds almost a graphic quality to the whole picture.

Wonderful textural contrast between the soft treatment of the waterfall and the rough rocks! Well done Jack! ;-)

Perfect waterfall that seems to draw the intensity of light towards it. Love the misty stream in the foreground as well.

I don't see you getting many answers to your question, Jack. Who has influenced your photography? (Happy All Saints Day to you, too!)
I have been influenced by many in this community. Firstly, and consistently by my father and sister. You?

1 Nov 2011 10:03pm

@LauraS: When I started taking photography seriously back in the 60s, Ansel Adams and Galen Rowell; today, Tony Sweet, Vincent Versace, Jay Maisel, David duChemin.
