Upper Creek Cascade

Upper Creek Cascade

A minor cascade just above the main fall at Upper Creek

Although I had hiked down to Upper Creek Falls in order to photograph the waterfall itself, there were a number of other compositions that caught my eye. I spent quite a bit of time climbing over and around the rocks of Upper Creek looking for images other than the obvious. The flow of water was relatively high for the fall and created some interesting flow in the main channel of the creek. This scene caught my eye because of the two different directions of water flow caused by a minor split in the flow upstream. The two temporarily diverted channels converged creating this interesting image. I love the water entering the shot from both the left edge of the image and from the top. The texture of the rock bed is visible through the clear water at the bottom of the frame. The moss on the rocks is still a vibrant green and you can see water draining from the saturated moss at the right edge of the image. The combination of a number of small details makes for an interesting overall image. Enjoy.
