Redbud along the Merced River

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 21 April 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A cloudy afternoon along the Merced River canyon provides perfect light for this Spring Redbud bush along a small rushing stream.

Really beautiful composition with pink flowers in front of falls. Love water looks like milk.

This is beautiful! I love th pink against the water! Superb composition and lighting. Terrific contrast between the sharp, crisp pink flowers and the soft, milky looking white water. Very well done

Nice composition with the color against the blurred water. I think the rocks help to balance it as well.

The Redbud certainly shouts SPRING anywhere they are, and with the rushing water background, even louder.

This is lovely. There is a ying/yang energy - between the still redbud and the rushing water. So very Zen. Nice, nice work!

Gorgeous shot. The rushing white waters in the background provide a perfect backdrop to help the pink flowers of the red bud pop. What a great photo!

Great composition here! It must have been a relatively still day as far as air movement as that colorful redbud is perfectly defined. It also contrasts nicely against the rushing stream.

Very well done with just the right amount of motion in the water Scott. I'll be positing something similar in about 4 days. That was a fun trip but I'm blaming my cold on getting wet and cold. At least the pictures were worth it!

Very pretty. I like the silky smoothness of the water as a backdrop for all that pink!
