Costilla Creek

 

 While in the Costilla wilderness, I was mesmerized by the clarity of the water there. I can not explain why water can sound differently when it hits the same kind of rock, but crystal clear water seems to sound crisper. Think of a radio station that just isn’t coming in compared to one in full digital stereo sound. When I arrived at this creek, I felt like a switch had been flipped somewhere, and I could finally hear what water hitting rock truly sounds like. The surround-sound style of trickling timbre, burbling and swishing of water was moving. I wanted to capture the sound of the water in a photo and came up with this shot. Dark in places, shining in others. Smooth at times, and rippled and swirling in others. An orchestra of sound captured in picture.

    Maybe clear water sounds different because of the lack of heavier impurities?

    I really don’t know.

    I like the texture of the water — it almost looks dark and foreboding like an angry prairie god dwells within.
