Falling Water

Dave  Higgins

Newcastle, United States

Artist's Description

This waterfall is on a remote dirt road In the mid-coast of Maine. It flows directly into the ocean, just below where the picture ends. Unfortunately with many remote water sources along the coast, people seem to think their dumps. I trying photograph it two times a year, and every time it takes me about an hour to clear the trash out of the stream. We’re not talking little stuff, refrigerators, truck tires, 50 gallon drums. I have an unknown partner. This is very steep, and I’m not young. so I get the stuff out of the stream into piles out of the picture. And whenever I come back the piles are gone but the stream is dirty. We must have different motivations, between the two of us would get the job done.

About the picture, this is another one of those shots, with the ocean is at my back. So I can’t move any further away. So I shoot a two shot
vertical panorama and assemble it in Photoshop.
With this image you need to decide if you’re going to make an environmental statement. Or produce a Pectoral image of a waterfall. If I leave it as a color image, the water is extremely yellow and murky. But if I converted to a black-and-white water is pristine and clean.

Some where in Pittsfield. Main spring of 08
