Curve of Living Water

Curve of Living Water

I have photographed this curve of the Little River hundreds of times. There is a little observation deck there built out over the edge of the marsh at Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. Of course it is never the same twice. The light, the sky and clouds, the exact colors of the marsh grasses day to day, the reflective quality of the river water…not to mention the state of the tide…it all changes constantly. So every image is different.

What does not change is the classic “s” curve of the river through the marsh.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide (31mm equivalent). F5.6 @ 1/800th @ ISO 100. Programed auto. -1EV exposure compensation.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom. Added Vibrance and Clarity in the Presence panel. Blackpoint slightly to the right. Sharpen landscape preset.
