Winter Spring

Old Erie Canal Park, DeWitt, NY

Although it was a few days after the official start of Spring, some late season snow covered the park. I was looking for some interesting water flow as the winter melt typically increases the water levels in all the creeks and rivers. I found what I was looking for during lunch at the Old Erie Canal Park in DeWitt but the snow made for some interesting climbing as I attempted to get to the water’s edge. I didn’t fall in (although it was close a couple of times) and I was even able to reach a new position next to the aqueduct. The overcast day combined with my 4-stop ND filter allowed my to slow the shutter speed enough to achieve the motion blur I wanted. I’m thinking the warmer weather heading my way (slightly) will give me more opportunities for my long exposure, water blur pics I enjoy.
