Riviere Haute

This is the photo I mentioned a few posts back that I entered into a contest in September. It did not place but it was juried into the “Trees and the River” exhibit that ran throughout October at the Vigo County Public Library in Terre Haute (French for High Ground), Indiana.

Riviere Haute (French for High River) was my entry for the annual photo contest sponsored by TREES Inc. I made this photo of the Wabash River during the April 2013 flood at Fairbanks Park in Terre Haute.

“Rivers & Waters” art show: Bridgeton Waterfall

Here is my latest work on display with the River City Art Association in Terre Haute, Indiana.

“Bridgeton Waterfall” in May at Bridgeton in Parke County, Indiana.

“Bridgeton Waterfall” and its companion piece, “Froth,” showcase Big Raccoon Creek that flows beneath the Bridgeton Covered Bridge and over the dam, creating a waterfall alongside the Bridgeton Grist Mill as it meanders through Parke County, Indiana to the Wabash River.
The most photographed scene in Parke County was even more captivating on May 18, 2013 as the swollen creek spilled over limbs of a large tree left on the dam by recent floodwaters.
The water’s surface sparkled like diamonds in the afternoon sun and trees on an island just a few yards downstream cast shadows on the dam, adding a hint of blue to the gold in the waterfall’s curtain.
My adrenalin rushed faster than the water over the dam as I dangled my upper torso precariously over a stone barrier to position my camera as far down and away from the wall as I could to capture the colors of the dam as well as the cascading effect of the water falling over the tree limbs to the pool of foam below.
