Bald River Falls

I need a refreshing and cool image that will take me away from this brutal heat that seems to have no end this summer.
Bald River Falls is a very large waterfall but I chose to pick a small but interesting part of the falls using a telephoto lens. There are two ways to describe what a long lens can do for you, compact information and isolate areas. Both of these effects are helpful when you are trying to simplify your composition. Using a tripod enabled me to use a slow shutter speed of 1/2 a second. You may ask why such a slow shutter speed on a sunny day? To show the motion of the water requires a shutter speed of 1/30 or slower. The slower the shutter the more motion you will see on film. LynnFreeny.com
