Light is Everything!

Workman’s Dam

I took advantage of the mad rainfall we had today (it put a damper on my deck repair plans, so I might as well take photos!) I’ve been wanting to test my ND filter on some running water. By killing the ambient light with the ND sunglasses, I was able to take some really long exposures 8-13 seconds long at f/22. 😎 It’s a really artsy look and gives the water a surreal, ethereal look. So I toddled down to Workman’s dam (it’s really more of weir) with my trusty tripod in tow. I nearly sank my  Sub-Compact, Fuel Efficient, Off-Roading Toyota Echo in the rhubarb though. The road in was pretty wet and nasty. Fortunately for me, a family was fishing nearby so I knew that if I got stuck on the way out, someone would be there to gimme a tow. hehhehhe… 😉 Anyways, I really enjoyed the end results tonight with the long exposure water shots and I’ve been wanting to try this aspect of photography for literally years. Hopefully this summer in our travels I’ll get to try it on some waterfalls. 😀
