Natural landscapes: the roaring rapids
PETAWAWA RIVER, PETAWAWA, ONTARIO
The “Emerald Necklace Trail” in this eastern Canadian military town leads to a great lookout over the river. The challenge was to reduce the light coming into the camera enough to allow for a long exposure, which smooths out the visually busy rapids. I recall the sky was a bland-off white that morning; that’s why I made sure to exclude it from the composition.

Wonderful that you slowed the rushing rapids down just long enough for us to get a close glimpse of this magnificent river, Frank. Magnificent colors in the water.
Great pic Frank. Love water flow images like this one.
This is gorgeous!
