Artist's Description

For some reason I love to get the shots where I have to lay stretched out on the rocks, pulling my knees out of the trickle of water I missed when sitting down in the other trickle of water I missed, leaning waaaaaaaaaaayyy out over the precipice and praying very hard that I don’t discover that this moment is the one where the sight and sound of rushing water make me wanna… well, delay my shots for a brief… delay. It was a shot like this one that got me butt-first off a cliff an down into a rock hole that broke multiple ribs that took months to heal after I rebroke them tripping over a stick on another photo shoot. It’s not that I’m particularly clumsy. Really. I just see something I’ve never seen before and lose all sense of relative safety while capturing it like a butterfly in a net, but without the butterfly or the net bits. Nevermind that this falls was about 4 feet tall (or about 2/3’s of my height dripping wet). Or that I took over 20 shots just to get just the right one but still had to edit out the explosive white flare in the pool of water that I missed. It was the thrill of the chase, the sacrifices to snag the beauty, and that lure of getting approved by the Colours Of Water group here in Red Bubble.

I’m not sure what part of this is most embarrassing to confess. Certainly not that last bit.
