A Quiet Saturday Morning

Good morning folks! It’s a wonderfully warm and sunny morning here in southeast Texas. A far cry from where my friends in Montana are getting snow in April.

Here’s a simple shot I took at dusk a few weeks ago using a Singh-Ray Vari-ND-Duo filter to achieve a slow exposure creating the silky look to the flowing water. Click on the image below to view the larger size. The secret to this type of shot is using a tack sharp lens on a sturdy tripod to create an image with incredible sharpness and detail in the rocks contrasting with the smooth flowing water.

Shot taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II set on aperture priority (Av) using an EF 24-104mm f/4L IS USM lens tripod-mounted. The exposure was taken at 98mm, f/16 for 3.2 seconds at ISO 100 using a Singh-Ray Vari-ND-Duo neutral density filter. All post capture processing was done in Adobe’s Lightroom 3 Beta 2.

  1. I love shots like that and that one is very nice. Coincidentally, I took a shot of a small falls yesterday too. THey are fun to do!

  2. Gorgeous water! I recently visited Pedernales Falls for the first time–what a wonderful place, especially for water shots like yours. Thanks for sharing!

    • Lauren,

      Thanks for reading and for your kind words. Pedernales Falls is the DisneyLand of photographic opportunities here in Texas. Each time you visit, you’ll come aways with new discoveries.

  3. I will take Texas, especially images like this. It has a lovely flatness to it.

    Oh don’t get me wrong, I would like to go hang out with Montucky for a bit but just for a quick vacation. In June.
