It was the perfect light for slowing down the shutter speed. Overcast with rain in the air. I was undercover under the trees. I couldn't get to the main waterfall it was tucked away around the corner with deep water and a steep slippery gorge preventing further progress. I balanced the camera on a rock down at the water's edge at the tail-end of the action. A thin watery shaft of sunlight suddenly filtered through the trees. It was the icing on the cake. I clicked away happily - Niels went back to the car! I know this technique has been done to death and I'm just adding to it. I took loads of shots, deleted lots and narrowed my posting to just these five!
Really beautiful effect Ann!
The water is like smoke or strands of silk. Stunning.
These look like spun cotton candy. So pretty.
Although you say this technique has been done, I think you make something very 'painterly' of it. Beautiful.
I don't understand the technicalities, but love the end result! Thank you - and for your encouraging comments on my intermittent blog during our recent move.
