Silence of Water (3 photos)

I’m taking a class on Saturdays at the moment, held by the California Chaparral Institute. The classes are at the Elfin Forest visitor center, near Escondido. Last week we spent some quiet and contemplative moments at the creek and I noticed how quiet it is along the creek, even though the water is constantly bubbling, rushing, murmuring… but I immediately classified the sound of a distant passing car or airplane as an intrusion, noise.

I wrote down the words “Silence of Water” to remember the thought and experience. Today I went a little ahead of time, and spent half an hour or so at the creek, before the class started. I guess I’m a little bit out of training when it comes to photographing running water in streams like Escondido Creek. :-) I’ll have a couple more attempts on the coming Saturdays. For now, I like how these three photos turned out.

  1. I also missed this one before. Those blur lines in the water are superb. I really miss the oak savannahs in SD.
