Which Ways Up?

The Brook…chatters and tumbles

photography--water-pool-rapids-SwittersB

I chatter over stony ways,
In little sharps and trebles,
I bubble into eddying bays,
I babble on the pebbles.

With many a curve my banks I fret
By many a field and fallow,
And many a fairy foreland set
With willow-weed and mallow.

I chatter, chatter, as I flow
To join the brimming river,
For men may come and men may go,
But I go on for ever.

Alfred Tennyson…The Brook

photography: macro experiment

I tied a smallish, size 18, black nymph; a version of a Copper John but with a ultra fine black wire. First I used the macro lens to show the image near a couple of pebbles. But, then I got the idea, for some reason, to attach the fly to a popcorn kernel to further show its size. Yes, go figure. I suppose a small ruler would suffice but instead I busted out popcorn kernels and attempted to capture something…I am sure. A bit blurry and the lighting was not great. Still you get the idea of scale.

Quicksilver in the Mind’s Eye

photography-water-rapids-boulders-SwittersB

How many mutations and looks? Ever changing, tumbling, slipping by…dancing, spinning, pushing by. Nature’s, life’s quicksilver, felt but then gone…seen for a moment then through the fingers gone, only a trace remaining to remind.
