Writing with Light

Smokey Hollow Falls

I just found out this morning that Craft & Vision release another free ebook. Yes you heard right…it’s absolutely FREE. I haven’t read it yet as I’ve just downloaded it myself. free_cover1  Grab your copy here and enjoy!

A couple of weekends ago I was out with my Photography Club for the day shooting waterfalls in the Hamilton, Ontario area. Unfortunately there was still a lot of snow and ice on the trail that prohibited us from climbing down to the river. Of all the shots I took that day this is the one that I was somewhat pleased with. I used my 10 stop ND filter in order to smooth out the falls and the way the water hits the rocks below.

  1. This is a real beauty, Edith! Makes the trip worth the effort even if you couldn’t get to the river. Nicely done in B&W.

  3. I quite like the duality of the frozen icicles and the ‘frozen’ water icicle that your approach has produced.
