Photography 101 – Water

The water understands
Civilization well;
It wets my foot, but prettily,
It chills my life, but wittily,
It is not disconcerted,
It is not broken-hearted:
Well used, it decketh joy,
Adorneth, doubleth joy:
Ill used, it will destroy,
In perfect time and measure
With a face of golden pleasure
Elegantly destroy.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
River Narmada, in spate

River Narmada, in spate

This pic was clicked in June, during the monsoons in India. This is a famous waterfall made by river Narmada, Bheraghat near Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. It is named Dhuandhar, meaning ‘smoky falls’, which is the mist produced by the falling water.

I have tried to capture the mist, but since it was monsoons, the river was in spate and the volume of water was too much. The redness of the flowing water is caused by the rich red and black soil region the river flows through.
