This is one of my favorite photos from when my son and I went on a hike up a gorge. The water was only a trickle, so the waterfalls were less than spectacular. So I focused on the abstract and unusual – which included this view. I have taken photos of these striations before. I like the way the weeds grow in rows along with the rock.

This photo was shot with film during winter with a slow shutter speed to get the cottony waterfall effect. It also overexposed the photo and made everything almost white, even the various colors were reduced to light shades. So I transported it into Paint Shop Pro and beefed up the saturation, clarified, and played with darkness and contrast. Then I began to experiment and desaturated it until I came up with this. The lines on the water are bubbles moving downstream and looking like lines due to the shutter speed.

This was shot with a film camera, (yes I am a dinosaur) and then prodded a bit in Jasc Paint Shop Pro. I could have shot it better, but all in all I like it. One of the many in my waterfall collection. Hope everyone likes it.
