Mid Stream, Mid Leap, By The Light Of The Moon
With time to kill one evening this past week, I stopped by a small stream near where I work to capture a few long exposures of fallen leaves swirling on the water’s surface.
Ready to leave, as even under the light of the rising full moon it was getting too dark to see and safely navigate the stream side rocks and boulders, I started back to my car.
One fortuitous glance as I leapt from one boulder to the next nearly stopped me in my tracks.
As I glanced downstream I could see the most beautiful light reflecting on the water. The rising full moon, casting its wonderful glow on the jet black surface of the water, and on the dark, wet, leaf littered rocks, was rising in perfect alignment with the stream.
Surely I had time for one last 60 second exposure.
