Texture Thursday – Green River

brandon ◙ brasseaux

Had some Independence Day stuff planned but did the famous trick of bringing along a battery-less camera, something that has happened an embarrassing amount of times, and most often when I decide to travel “light.”


The above shot was taken from a small wooden bridge in some back country. Besides the texture application, there wasn’t much post-processing. The river had a film of perhaps algae or perhaps pollution on top and the evening sun was pouring in perfectly. The only rub was that it was a clear sky on a blistering afternoon (+100° F). White light, white heat. I tried using my polarizer but had minimal effect except saving the highlights. I wished I could have stuck around longer but the light was fleeting and I had another place I wanted to catch at the start of twilight.  The texture applied is a “raised texture,” a texture type I find useful.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

  1. Great image! I like the elevated view, the “S” shape of the river as well as the processing. I enjoy your body of work, your descriptions of the location, and how you got the shot. You forgot your battery? I have never forgot essential items that I need for a shoot…..cough…cough. 😉

  2. Ohhh, when I saw the title I thought you might have come to the Pacific Northwest and visited our famous Green River (rather crappy way to become famous). Man, no battery…I will admit that I did that ONCE! Lol, learned my lesson that’s for sure. 😀
