Roll With It

West Canada Creek

It is not like I partake in many social gatherings but when you are advised to limit your interaction it definitely modifies your behavior, even behavior that was already sparse. Luckily for me I enjoy quite a few solitary activities. Sunday was a beautiful, sunny day although a little on the cool side. Considering it is still early March I shouldn’t complain. It was a good day for photography.

The early morning found me in search of a sunrise that did not materialize the way I had hoped. But, to be truthful, I did not plan it as well as I should and a lack of images is the result. Midday was a different story. I knew exactly what I wanted to capture. I drove up to Trenton Falls to play in the West Canada Creek.

The harsh, overhead sun would produce bright whites and deep shadows which is exactly what I was looking for while I photographed the fast moving water. My telephoto lens and 4-stop ND filter allowed me to smooth out the water flow while still retaining some detail in small sections of the river.

I should warn everyone now, my collection of images from Sunday was pretty good with an above average keep rate… it was a good afternoon.
