Well, take me back down where cool water flows, y’all.
Let me remember things I love
Stoppin’ at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin’ along the river road at night,
Barefoot girl dancin’ in the moonlight.

I can hear the bullfrog callin’ me, home.
Wonder if my rope’s still hangin’ to the tree.
Love to kick my feet ’way down the shallow water.
Shoefly, dragonfly, get back to mother.
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.

Up at Cody’s camp I spent my days, Lord,
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
Said, “You’re gonna find the world is smould’rin’.
And if you get lost come on home to Green River.”
Green River – Creedence Clearwater Revival

Green Lake near Okanagan Falls, BC., Canada

    Incredible to see these two shots up against each other John. The luminescent streaks through the water are pure magic. Fabulous work.

    do you know, i prefer the b/w version… the tonal range seems to balance out more beautifully as well as the composition, even though it’s the same pic!… interesting to see :)))

  • I get you. The color one really show off the colors of the scene and the B&W is only a compromise for submitting into black and white only groups – Yet there’s a version on my harddrive that has less mass appear, one that’s almost completely desaturated with a light sepia effect really conveys the mood. So much for giving into pressure, eh?

    The colour version is great John, but I, somehow, prefer the B&W one. It’s my personal preference to like monochrome. I may then focus more on mood, on message the image spreads. And you work is very evocative. I really love it!:)
