water on the rocks!
Rock on edge of water OR ‘water on the rocks’ (depending on how you see it), Noosack Falls, Mt Baker Highway, 2011
Long exposure of water is a concept I’ve tried a couple of times before with mixed results. My analysis of those times when it has failed had one thing in common. even though the flow of water had the dreamy effect, there was usually no center of interest. While visiting Noosack Fall I wanted to focus on some of the rocks which had been carved into beautiful shapes by the force and fury of the water flowing at a considerable speed.
technical note: I have used a polarizer here which cut’s down some of the
glare reflections and also enhances the colors. I would have also used a ND Filter but with the water being in a shade I could shoot with a couple of seconds of exposure (tripod was handy) and hence avoided stacking 2 filters together.
