Mountain River Walk
Hi fellow Hiveians,
Today I'm back with one of my favorite types of photography: River photography!
Mountain River Walk
I may be a broken record at times, when I post about the things that I see and appreciate. One of those things is definitely mountains! What comes with mountains most often as well are rivers and streams. This one is no exception, as this mountain chain has the outflow of a fairly large river and we can certainly see it here. Living relatively near the mountains is great because we can learn to appreciate things such as the rivers. Not as many people appreciate this as I think should, with the modern conveniences people don't understand that our water comes from somewhere. The place it rains the most often in a lot of areas around the world are the mountains. This is because it traps the blend of warm and cool air. The warm air of the ground makes its way towards the cooler air of the mountain and eventually produces rain, in a simplistic form of course.
This then produces the rivers, which I thoroughly enjoy taking pictures of! I am trying to change up my photography style in the future when it comes to rivers but I need to get a bit different equipment in order to do that. I enjoy the crisp, still-style of pictures that I take of the rivers but I would love to get into the blurred and motion side of it where the river is moving and soft, where you can observe the motion in the photos. I have a decent functioning tripod for me to take those types of pictures but I just haven't gotten around to taking them. In the meantime, I've got a few good crisp ones!
This river is called the Pemigawasset and is one of the big rivers that flows out of the White Mountains in New Hampshire, connecting to a few different ones and eventually pouring out in the ocean via the Merrimack River ending in Newburyport. It takes quite a tortuous journey from the mountains, several hundred miles to the ocean. Being at the source is pretty remarkable! There is so much power and strength in this river and it is evident with how strongly it flows in these areas. You can tell how high the river gets at times, this time being one of the lower of the cycles.
The rocks are everywhere and where you can see the rocks and the banks, are where the river has the potential to run. During the rainy times of the year, it can reach several feet higher than it is now which is crazy to think of. It's already fairly deep in the middle, I would say 3 or 4 feet at the deepest point in this particular location but likely 6 feet or more at the highest in these water levels. Add a few feet onto that during a rainy season and it's insane the volume of water that flows down this thing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
We walked for about 3/4 a mile along the riverbank here, ending just around the bend you can see below. We started a bit down stream from where we were right here and had a really nice time seeing the different parts of the river and stopping to try and fish in the different slower parts of the tide pool. We didn't catch anything when we were mulling about but it was a good time to walk along the river bank!
