The first stage of The Twilit Lens’ journey across America: perhaps the most famous waterfall in the country.
It was a cold and misty magic hour, the sun just beginning to rise, the roar of the water a continuous white ambience. Fog enshrouded the far distance and nary a soul apart from myself and JoDee. The time was right for a slow exposure photograph.
Normally I don’t enjoy maxing out the f-stops on my lenses due to the risk of diffraction, but blur was actually what I wanted in this case. The classic feathery water, the otherworldly atmosphere. It was like standing at the edge of a dream.
Plus the tiny aperture allowed me to stop the shutter speed way down to achieve the desired effect. 😉 At any rate, enjoy!
Exposure Data: ISO 100, f/29, 1/5
