I am taking a photography journey via WordPress.com’s Blogging U Photo 101 course. Between now and my birthday (July 04th) the project will involve expanding my photography sight and insight. As for the daily project deadline the art of photography and life rarely go as planned.
I used the Hot Springs Cascade in Hot Springs National Park as my water feature. Horizontal and vertical images change the visibility of the landscape and the water flow in each photograph. The top two images were shot with my Motorola Maxx smartphone and present a broader view of the landscape and water flow. The 2nd and 3rd sets are shot with my Sony Alpha DSLR using a 70-400mm lens. I like details and focused on two different flow points in the overall cascade.
This is so pretty Angel….I love “our cascade”. Gr8 photos as always too.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Hot Springs. Nice to be able to see it again, even if only in pictures.
My husband and I love it here, if you ever miss it I have over 24,000 photos of the area on this blog 🙂
Thank You for stopping by,
Great photos! I think waterfalls pose the perfect conundrum to whether to go for a landscape or a portrait mode. I like all of them though 🙂
Thank You, each waterfall requires its own special portrait 🙂
Oh and since we were talking of Shutter speed, here’s an article that might interest you :http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/2315/picking-a-shutter-speed-for-the-best-waterfall-pictures/
The colors in these are so vibrant! I love that you captured the steam in the lower images. The horizontal one in particular speaks to me because the closeness of the moss and stone in foreground on the left make me feel like I’m sitting in the frame. Really nice work.
Thank you Andrea, it is a wonderful place to sit early in the morning. Early in the morning birds and small mammals come to enjoy Nature’s spa. In the snow and ice of winter they come to warm themselves. Male Cardninals and Cedar Waxwings in the Hot Spring. The algae, moss and lichen create a mosaic of green in the steam.
I love your photos, they are amazing. Thank you for sharing.
Thank You, sometimes we need a shakeup to our normal blogging… this is a great deal of fun too! Loved your bridge shots.
I am glad you liked my photo. You have an amazing site. Something for me to aspire to. Thank you.
Your drenched screen was a perfect shot and reminded me of a time when I lived in New Zealand.
