Surfaces of water, Swaledale, June 2009



  1. Umm I relate and connect to this much more. It is evocative, it isn’t totally abstract.

  2. There’s definitely a face in the middle along the bottom of the frame.

    The directions of the ripples lead nicely to the mini-rip. The shadow in the middle is intriguing but could be a phrygian hat on the head belonging to the face below.

  3. I better relate to this one as well. Not sure I would have found the face (and hat) on my own, but it is hard to look away from it once it has been pointed out. Like some Dr. Seuss character.

  4. I’m going to be difficult…. I struggled to interact with the previous shot, but I find this one too easy. Perhaps because this is a view that I’ve looked at for many hours.

    I wondering if my reaction is to do with me wanting the subject to be moving. Have you found my personal limit for still photography?

  5. Colin, quite possibly. With a number of my shots from that trip I was exploring and challenging what constitutes landscape/nature photography.

  6. I admit that I don’t think I would have found the face on my own. I like this one very much. The framing is effective, the tones are very pleasing, and all those diagonals remind me why I love so much looking at running water. Makes me want to live near a river, or at least a good sized brook.

  7. I too find this a little ‘easy’. However, those ripples all flowing back up to the bubbling water are very calming on the eyes..perhaps that’s why this looks quite still to me.
