Thacher Park, of late, has become a place for me to recharge my creative personal photographic batteries. In doing so, I feel a refreshing change in my view towards nature.
Which is what happened a couple of days ago. I dropped off my two pictures at the Emma Treadwell Nature Center for the upcoming Thacher Park Nature Show, and as I drove through the rain down Route 157 back to Albany, I noticed that the rain and chilly weather had created several little creeks and streams along the mountainside. I must come back and photograph some of these, I thought to myself.
Friday afternoon… I’ve got the Nikon Df and I want to capture these streams.
Dang it… they’re either gone, or they’re down to a trickle. Damn it, Miller, would it kill you to be more prepared?
Then I saw it. A beautiful stream along the mountainside. It hadn’t disappeared; in fact, it was still flowing, free and beautiful.
I parked. Grabbed the Df. And a few rapid-fire shots later…
Oh wait. I’m not done. See, folks, I can either bring you a photo of a waterfall…
Or I can bring you the waterfall itself. Courtesy of a 12-image combined Nikon Df cinemagraph.
And this, my friends, is your moment of zen. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of a late winter stream, the ice melting into little creeks and trickles.
A moment of zen for you, to help make the rest of your day as smooth and as crisp and as clear as the melted water.
Enjoy the weekend, my friends.
