Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, Kent, Connecticut. Thayer Brook is the last big stream crossing on this hike. There’s usually a small foam whirlpool in this spot and I’ve photographed them here before.
No doubt there’s a scientific reason for foam forming in these patterns right after a small waterfall on a brook because that’s where I’ve found all of the foam patterns I’ve shot. It’s like the foam forms when the water goes over the fall but it takes a while (in this case about 25′) for it to collect like this. There was no foam visible on the water between this little “collection” and the waterfall, just clear water as far as I could tell. This pocket of rock was like a foam collector.
Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, Kent, Connecticut. This is one of our favorite hikes in the area, from Bull’s Bridge to Kent on the AT. Near the New York/Connecticut border we crossed a little stream that had some nice ice on it. Had to stop and see if I could capture some patterns.
Schaghticoke Ridge, Appalachian Trail, Kent, Connecticut. This foam whirlpool was on a stream crossing the Appalachian trail on the Schaghticoke Ridge section between Bull’s Bridge and Rt. 341. This is the largest stream on the hike which can be difficult to cross in high water.
This is my favorite 4min selection of a larger work by Ralph Steiner. The original was silent, and the DVD had it set to classical music. I have swapped the audio for an electronica/industrial track by 3 Liquid Hz – Little Boy.
I like the remix (by VertikalDesign) and I can imagine that the original is excellent too.
I went to art school at the University of Oregon with Brad Miller although I don’t think I’ve seen him since 1980. This is a show he has up at the Edward Cella Gallery in Los Angeles. Brad came upon tumbling rocks and natural forms in the late 1970s and he’s been working with these kinds of themes ever since.
Dutch photographer Gerco de Ruijter recently got in touch with an extraordinary series of aerial photographs called Baumschule—some of which, he explains, were taken using a camera mounted on a fishing rod.
The series features “32 photographs of tree nurseries and grid forests in the Netherlands.”
Fantastic stuff. Would be fun to make mosaics out of these.
United Terminal, LAX. I was inspired by all of the great iPhone photography I’ve been seeing. This is nothing fancy, just a front camera shot of tiles and a curve in a ceiling with light. With no experience pre-visualizing these types of images with an iPhone this is a shot in the dark, so to speak.
The Big Picture has an absolutely stunning collection of aerial images of housing and other human created landscapes in southwest Florida. I love this stuff, reminds me of macro images of microprocessors.
