Water & Movement

Leap of Faith
Related by marriage to white-water kayakers, I am frequently on the edge of conversations about water - its shape, flow and its holes, lines and eddies. The allure of water on people is strong. The irresistible pull of moving water is liberating – a kind of effortless, floating motion. In this photo, the kayaker takes this freedom to the next level, plummeting with his aquatic vehicle over a waterfall on the Elk River near Elko.

I love how the constant rolling of the surface of the ocean compliments the colors of fire, in the sky. The motion of water can have an emotional effect which is perfect for photography.
