Waterfalls - Jim Nevill Photography

Sierra Nevada, CA. There are many elements to a photograph which make it work or not. Ansel Adams' famous quote was, "photography is knowing where to stand." He's right of course but once you do all the work involved in being at the right spot the challenge becomes timing and for me, storytelling and originality of composition. Any musician will tell you that it's not so much the chords you play but the arrangement and rythmic subtleties that makes your sound unique. All this stuff runs through my head when I make a picture and to me, the result here is a nice balance of movement, tranquility, groundedness, purification and change.
