Falling River

Part of a larger cascade, but this section was all that was needed to complete the image.

Compositions with waterfalls can be tricky at times – you need to overcome the urge to photograph the entire flow and fall of water. The story can be told in lines, shapes and colours. These elements can be found within the bigger picture, and framed with lines in mind.

The rocks on the left were important, and they changed shape just out of the frame. I wanted to keep the illusion of diagonal lines, which resulted in fine-tuning the composition to what you see here. In this small section of a much larger waterfall, I spent an hour contemplating the best image.
