The Rock Cleaved

End of April!

Where does all the time go? How can time feel so fast and so slow at the same time… it’s a wonderful duality that makes me happy and confused to think about…

Daily Photo - The Rock Cleaved

I need more waterfalls in my life! This is what I am thinking whenever I just finish taking photos of waterfalls. As I was walking away from this one in Iceland, where I spent most of the day, I was thinking about the next waterfall. Then the next one. Then the next one. I think it’s cool how something can be so violent and beautiful at the same time.

    I agree. I took 2 months back a few years ago and travelled the northwest searching and shooting mostly waterfalls. Lots of them in Oregon and Washington.

    Very nice,its a reminder of way back when there was still peace in Rhodesia and as a camera club we all went to see Victoria Falls. As a young man it took my breath away and the noise,it did not help even if you shouted no one could here you any way. You had to have umbrellas and rain wear,or you were soaked. Thanks for bringing back memories. Must admit though at a second glance at you lovely photo Vic Falls makes yours look like a miniature falls.Hope you all wake up to a pleasant week.

    Is that Godafoss, Iceland? Looks great. Water falls are great to shoot I just wish there were more in the UK.

    Awesome shot Trey, there is something about waterfalls in black and white the just seems right.

    One of my favourite photographs that I have ever seen was a huge print of a waterfall exploding into life in Milford Sound. I found the print in a small gallery in Cromwell I think it was. The closest I have found since was this image, http://www.shopnewzealand.co.nz/images/Milford-Sound-Storm-Poster.jpg but the one I remember was somehow more powerful.

     That’s an iconic shot in Milford Sound.

    The wind was so strong that day that it was blowing the waterfall back up the cliff.  Gravity had to work hard to make its living.  :)

    Lots of the them in Montana, too, Dave.  Waterfalls are so beautiful no mater where they are.  Lots of them in Michigan, too!!

  • Raymond Ratcliff

    Another great photo as usual.  My experience is that time goes faster the older you become.   You guys have a great trip.

  • Paul Garrett

    Epic shot and processing, Trey!  You should come back to Oregon and do a waterfall tour.  We have many beautiful ones including Proxy Falls near me, and Punchbowl Falls up in the Columbia Gorge.

    I agree – when you see a waterfall you must capture it, same as you must capture a spiral staircase when you see one – it’s the law!

    In response to my post yester day,  I did some sports photography while I was unemployed last year  - I never got paid but it was a good way to go to the match on a Saturday, get up close to the action and get to use some of my other photography skills. You got to meet a lot of burnt-out working photographers though who really hated what they did – that was the side of things that made me realise that I should keep photography only as a hobby.  I’ve stuck a few of my efforts below for all to see :-

    I’ll be digging the gear out soon for my new dog coming on Thursday – very exciting!

    Beautiful photo… it looks like the cloud is emptying into the river.

  • Trey Ratcliff

    Thank you :)

    Michigan isn’t often recognized by outsiders for its beauty. I was unaware of Michigan’t waterfalls. 

  • Dave Morgan

     I caught some in West Virginia in the fall at a Grist Mill. Colors were amazing. I’ll post sometime on my site at: http://www.travelbugster.com
