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.

  1. Nice in black and white.

    Is that on higher ground, the place where you photographed? Is the water coming down from Mount Rainier? Does it have a green quality like some melt water has?

    1. I don’t think that particular spot is too high up. I’m not sure about the river. No doubt some melt water feeds it. It is brownish, not green.
