I’ve always liked the shapes that the shadows cast on the craters of a half moon.

When I photograph underwater, I find that I tend to naturally focus on small details.  I’m not sure why, but when underwater every little thing seems interesting and new.  I try to consciously step back and look at the larger view.  I do find underwater landscapes interesting, though.  I think the atmospheric perspective of the water, light distortions, and surface reflections provide a nice feeling of depth.

Sunday Nature Stills – 09/04/2016

I took this photograph earlier this week in Oregon.  It’s a little tricky, in an image like this, to get the exposure right above and below the water at the same time.  I had the camera in the water with the water surface right in the middle of the lens.  The water level is also constantly changing as the water flows around the camera, so there is lot of trial and error involved with getting a nice perspective both above and below.  I like the way the light on the bubble filled waterfall made the water glow.
