Abstracts: waves of the Lochsa River, Idaho, USA

May 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

The Lochsa River is designated as a National Wild and Scenic River and is located in northern Idaho. The river has no dams and is known for having world class continuous whitewater. The name of the river refers to this: "Lochsa" is a Nez Perce word that translates into "rough water". I photographed several waves in a rapid from the bank during spring runoff. It was interesting to me that the composition is not necessarily clear when you look though the viewfinder. Not only does the water change continuously, but if you use a slow shutter speed, like I did, the different flows that determine the composition become far more pronounced. This meant that I needed to make adjustments to the composition based on what the previous photo showed me. Click here for the other abstract images of waves in the Lochsa River.
