This may be the most abstract image yet in your creek series. I really like the interaction between the diagonal flow from the upper left to the curve of foaming water at the lower right. I can see an imaginary creature in the foam. :)
This is my 2nd or 3rd attempt at this type of water series- I do notice that abstraction increases as I progress. I find subjects mostly by chance, and then revisit them shooting the subject over and over in a short space of time (this entire series was shot in 10 minutes), and checking the images after each shot on the back screen of the camera, conceptually trying to squeeze expression out of a representational image. It’s like trying to squeeze water out of a rock, but after a few hundred thousand shots, it starts to drip out.

Imaginary creatures are everywhere- I have hundreds of bark/tree, rock, puddle and even pavement shots all with “creatures” formed inside….if you look hard, you will find one every 100 metres or so….
The idea of abstraction increasing as you progress makes perfect sense to me. I assume you get into a kind of mental zone when working this way. That’s familiar to me because it sometimes happens when I become very involved with a particular subject, most often flowers or foliage. I also understand the monomania of going back to a compelling subject over and over. It gooses one’s creativity because, after all, what would be the point of shooting the same interpretation of one subject over and over?
It’s a good series you’re presenting here – thank you!
Good to see I’m not the only one afflicted with this disease! haha!
great colours – love the left third most as you can look through the curtain of water.
It makes a beautiful “painting” Ben
aha! you’ve got it…
Very nice capture
