Look What the Rainfall Has Done!

I dont often post a straight quick shutter photo of moving water. I prefer the smooth, feathery look of a slow shutter photograph. However, in this case, I wanted to be sure to get the violent splashes of the water as it rushes over the rocks. The rivers are all very swollen right now due to the excessive rainfall we have been getting lately.

PS - Facebook users: I have entered a photo I took in a contest, and would REALLY appreciate your vote. You can find my submission here (http://bit.ly/vote4hoodphoto) and THANK YOU!


  1. I heard some places are flooded. Be safe!

  2. Amazing rush of water here, and the moss on the stones make it look all that more interesting! Great capture!

  3. I can see the wildness in your photo. Stay safe.

  4. That is a raging torrent!


    Puddles of water and drops of dew—
    What does it take to satisfy you?
    A rushing river, a roiling sea—
    That’s what it takes to satisfy me!
