One of the things I love most about photographing rocky scenes like the waterfalls of the PacNW or the shorelines of Hawaii is the variance in compositions. It’s not hard at all to walk away with a bunch of awesome shots taken within a foot or two of each other. All it takes is a bit of imagination and a flexible tripod. When I returned to Ruckel Creek Falls the other month, I got a great assortment of photos that revolved around this mossy boulder in the foreground. Instead of focusing on the big picture shots, I opted to get low and tight and explore all of the different ways that the water has been flowing.

In fact, I’m really excited to launch my latest special project called, The Path of Least Resistance early next year, which is a study of how water moves and interacts with its surroundings.
