Natural landscapes: the thundering mountain water


The Vermilion River was raging when I visited, so the falls are hard to discern (you can see them better in this early winter view: But as you can tell, it was still a glorious place to visit.
Making a long-exposure picture took some work, but I think it was important to bring some smooth flow to the violent crashing of the water as it squeezed through a relatively small opening. There wasn’t much colour in this scene, so it was a no-brainer to remove the distraction of colour.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, two neutral density (darkening) filters.
