A couple of weeks ago, Ed and I made a little trip to Watson Mill Bridge State Park. We had been there before, but it has been a while. It's close enough for a day trip. We were concerned that it might be closed due to budget cuts, but it wasn't. The office was open and lots of folks were enjoying the park.
It was a beautiful day to take pictures and there were lots of interesting vistas to photograph. The covered bridge is so long, its difficult to get the whole thing in one shot, so I made a panorama of it. I tried some stop-action on the dam overflow. It makes the water sparkle. I don't care for the style of blurring water. That is not how our eye sees it. If we look hard at falling water, we see it freeze as it falls. That is what I am trying to capture. Water Patterns is a tone-mapped composite illustrating the patterns that our eyes see in a whirlpool.
I hope you enjoy these and the other Watson Mill Bridge photos. All except the Dam Overflow are HDR images. I've put this gallery in the slideshow on my homepage. Let me know what you think.
