Textures and Tones

On a recent day that began very overcast, I visited Mount Rainier National Park. There are several rivers in the park, and the Nisqually is one of them.

Here it is a very narrow, shallow ribbon cutting through a rocky bed. You can see the low clouds over the valley.

These were shot in color, but I have converted them to black & white, to focus on the patterns in the water and colors and patterns in the rocks.

The tone of the water reminds me of chocolate milk.

These views were shot from a bridge over the river.
