Texture of a Downpour

and a missed opportunity via “I should go over there….no, I’ll do it tomorrow”. The water was up and the salmon were moving up river. In fact, look across the river, in the below image, and you will note a small stream flowing into the river. My attention was drawn toward the mouth of that small stream. Dozens of large salmon were staged at the mouth and attempting to push up into the stream. Their backs were protruding as they pushed, thrashed and twisted via powerful tail thrusts.

I thought that would make for some great photos. I would sit and focus on the five foot wide mouth and take great shots of the fish, rocks, water and splashes. Yes, that was a great idea I thought. But, not that day, I had to catch fish (those fish staged off the small stream are quite vulnerable and to me it would be blatantly unethical to harass them at the point they were entering their spawning habitat).

What I didn’t think about was the water level not only dropping for the main river, but also for the small stream. The next day, the water had dropped so far the salmon could not make a run into the small stream. They were no where to be seen. Opportunity lost…so I fished upriver.

Tonight, I’m back home and I can see it is currently raining hard at the coast. The water will rise by morning and those salmon will be staged off that small stream and muscle up over those rocks and I won’t be there to capture it. Maybe soon (it won’t last much longer) or maybe it waits until next year.

Photography: The Grit & Rust

There is something about old equipment on a farm, ranch, logging operation, industrial setting that catches my eye. Not the new stuff, but rather the abandoned. Why is that? History… wondering what was…how it ended? The extra benefit is I see much, much more later that I didn’t see in the moment.

Photography: Oxidized & Forgotten

The texture of objects, especially worn wood and rusting steel are appealing to me. I stopped by a field with the remnants of logging operations laying about, rusting away and forgotten. Every piece was big and heavy, often linked together to make something to conquer the earth. Strong men assembled, maintained and operated the equipment.
