i go to the water

mid-summer, midday, playing with a wide aperture and a fast shutter speed

“If the day is fine, any walk will do; it all looks good. Water in particular looks its best, reflecting blue sky in the flat, and chopping it into gravelled shallows and white chute and foam in the riffles. On a dark day, or a hazy one, everything’s washed out and lacklustre but the water. It carries its own lights. I set out for the railroad tracks, for the hill the flocks fly over, for the woods where the white mare lives. But I go to the water.”

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek | Annie Dillard
