I'm a free spirited aging hippie
who loves talking to flowers, chasing rainbows
and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

The Rainy Season Has Arrived

The winter rains have arrived
to replenish our rivers and creeks
and invigorate our waterfalls ~

A little shooting info:
Camera (hand held) was set to f/11 at 1/15sec, ISO was 200
Filter was a Hoya UV haze..  It was a misty morning.
I shoot in RAW, convert to Tiff for Photoshop, then to JPEG.
Thanks for your interest!

I can hear the waters. (k.....it's raining out, but that's not what I mean.. LOL)

I like all the brambly bits with the rush behind 'em. They're lucky to have a seat so close to the action.

Beautiful image!

Curious to know what settings you used to create the neat effect with the water.

As I'm sure, many other's would be interested too. :)

Beautiful, Laura! Sometimes I think you live in the wonderful state and sometimes I think that I am simply miss beauty everywhere!

This is a breathtaking picture! Wow! This waterfall crashing down with such power!

I would love to say you that you inspired me to shoot in RAW also. I am learning.

Happy 2012, dear Laura!

The soft rush of water!
It is wonderful.
Did you use a filter for this effect?
We too have a light sprinkle of rain today.
