Rivers and Waterfalls – Reflecting Power, Secrecy, and Beauty

Rivers – they have always played an important role in human life. Our ancient ancestors deified the rivers; we, modern generations of the human race, made our best to derive huge economic profits from exploiting the rivers and often devastating their natural riches; and our successors will, hopefully, make more efforts to save rivers and help them regain their natural beauty, richness, and purity.

Water is the source of life on Earth, according to the commonly accepted scientific theory. But flowing rivers are also a source and core element of many beautiful landscapes and natural sceneries, because they have unique ability to vivify the motionless pictures of nature. Furthermore, rivers can form such natural phenomena, as waterfalls with their unrestrained power and unique beauty.

We have chosen water or rivers and waterfalls photography in particular to be featured on Cruzine magazine today. Here you will be able to enjoy the incredible visual images of calmness and tranquility of quiet rivers, as well as irrepressible motion of mountain rivers and waterfalls. Furthermore, the below gallery illustrates different visual effects, which can be created by utilizing some specific photography techniques, such as HDR, long exposure, panoramic photography, etc.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
