~ Swirling Around ~
As you can probably tell by now, I enjoy shooting scenes that include water. The "Blue" line in my logo represents water and the "Green" line represents the land. You can set a mood with water included in a composition; this is the reason that I carry with me a pair of chest waders. To get some of my shots, I pull on the waders and off I go, hoping I don't slip (my gear is insured in case I do). I am always on the lookout for a nice foreground element to include in my images. By adding a foreground it creates a nice depth to an image. In this image, I liked the way the water was "Swirling Around" the rock.

This large boulder is one of many along the Red River, in the Red River Gorge. I had photographed this particular boulder a few years ago, with a different composition. The image created a few years ago is hanging in the Saint Joseph Hospital in London, KY.
Today was a good day of shooting. I usually don't come home with two keepers from the same day. These were shot at the Broke Leg Falls area which was devastated by a tornado in March 2012. I originally had a third shot included in this post. But the more I looked at the image the less I liked it. So it was removed from the original post.
Check out the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen's new building at 116 North Broadway in Berea, KY. If you are in the area, stop by for a visit. There is a lot of beautiful art for sale in the gallery by KGAC artists.
