Landscape Photography Tip: Flowing Water

Flowing Water

There are many options to landscape photographers when it come to photographing water. If there is a river, creek, or stream that flows through the landscape scene you are about to photograph, think about the characteristic of it and how you should convey those characters in the final photograph. A large, slow moving river has a completely different look and feel than a fast moving mountain stream with rocks and boulders. The characteristics of the water can be the point of interest in the photograph or it can serve as a complimentary element in your composition by using it as a leading line, as a horizontal line, or as a shape simply by moving around the scene during the photo shoot.

While on the location look carefully for any reflections on the surface of the water too. You have the option for the reflections to enhance the landscape photo. For instance, the colored reflections of bright autumn leaves can sometimes enhance the landscape photos. Or you may find that the reflections on the surface of the water takes away from the landscape scene, if this is the case you can reduce the glare and reflections by using a polarizing filter. If you don’t have a filter, moving around the scene could help you with the options to include the reflections or eliminate the as well. Worst case scenario, you return to the location when the sun is at a different angle to the water.

The Reedy Island Rear Range is one of several range lights that were built as part of a channel dredging project in the early 1900s along the Delaware River. The channel was built heading north from the Atlantic Ocean towards Philadelphia Pennsylvania; the channel is made a series of turns which lies close to the Delaware shore off Port Penn. All along the channel (the Delaware River) between the turns and the sediment navigation up and down the channel was a challenge in the early years. The Delaware River was one of the first locations in the US which employed the use of steel in the lighthouse and range construction. Because of the soft coastline along the Delaware shores permanent lighthouses could not withstand erosion and every time the channel was dredged the lighthouses would have to be moved. The use of steel allowed the engineers to move the structures fairly easily (in comparison to a wooden or concrete structure).

There was once a keeper’s house and shed that stood near the tower all of which were built in 1906 with funds from the original appropriation for the range. Eventually the light was automated and a keeper was no longer needed on the property so the house fell into disarray. The light station is still in use today but the light keeper’s house was destroyed in a fire in 2002 and the shed has seen better days.
