Stainless

So… saving the best for last with an image I’ve titled Stainless. This as it turns out was the very last frame I took this day. My favourite of the session as it turns out, perhaps I should have stayed a little longer…

I’d mentioned previously that I should have been dropping in an ND (neutral density) filter to drag out the shutter even longer. With enough time to allow that bubbly foam wash time to really streak through the whole image during a longer exposure

As it happens the water level had been steadily rising whilst I’d been shooting here and the volume of water pounding down the falls was getting stronger. This resulted in more churn in the water at the base of the falls and much more bubbly foam. It was also getting much darker (it was almost 6PM now) as the sun was setting. As it turns out no need for ND’s anymore 🙂

I’d switched to bulb mode and was pushing out towards 100 seconds so there was enough time for the bubbles to really flow all the way past the camera frame. Resulting in this mass of streaks across most of the water surface – just what I was looking for

And for kicks here is a monochrome rendition of the same image. It actually probably fits the stainless moniker more readily
