Water over rocks, that is how my photography has been described to me. I do take a lot of photographs of water flowing over rocks, so it is not an unfair description. I was on my way home last night (after taking some photos of water over rocks) and got to thinking about why this is such an interesting subject for me. There are so many emotions that can manifest themselves around water. Calm, panic, fear, joy. I think that is part of the attraction for me. Water is such a powerful force of nature, it can be a calming babbling brook or a raging torrent that threatens to take you with it. Either way it commands respect. It is this duality of water that intrigues me so much, it draws you in but keeps you at a distance all at the same time. It has literally forged the landscape around us. There is a feeling of insignificance and a sense of wonder when face to face with an ocean or one of the great lakes; or the pleasure of a quiet stream gently flowing through the woods. It is these feelings, these moments that I enjoy so much, and that is what draws me to the water and the rocks.
