Artwork Description: Rushing Water: Spreagues Lake
Rushing Water shows the rapids of a small water fall in the outflow from Spreague's Lake in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park. The viewers eye is lead in a zig zag from the upper left to lower right by course of the flowing water.
This image was created early in June of 2011 during a two week appointment as Artist-In-Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park.
The sweeping vistas of the Rockies are both seductive and overwhelming to me. My creative vision is more suited to intimate landscapes. I seek out the small beauties of these places with the help of my wife. The camera could not have been closer to the water without getting wet feet. A slower shutter speed was chosen exposure to capture the movement of the rushing water.
Rushing Water was created on Velvia 100 sheet film exposed in a 4x5 inch Zone-VI view camera mounted with a 210mm/f-5.6 Caltar-II N lens. The transparency has been digitally scanned and the image is presented here as an archival ink jet print
This image was originally conceived, created, processed and printed expressly for donation to Rocky Mountain National Park. The first print of this image is in the possession of The National Park Service and will be sold to support the maintenance of the historic William White Cabin.
