Quiet Stream and Roaring Stream

Quiet Stream and Roaring Stream

Here’s another shot that I took when I was in Ricketts Glen in Pennsylvania.  Although waterfalls are the main feature of the park, there are plenty of other things to photograph there as well, including the streams that are between the falls.  In some cases, they are smooth brooks, babbling along with a quiet serenity.  In other cases, they are gushing cascades, roaring with the sound of rushing water.



I simply love how the water flows over the rocks and through the channels in the above shot.

Which do you prefer?  The strong, roaring current or the serene, quiet stream?
