Just a couple of nice abstracts from a stretch of water near my home. It was well after sunset so I was able to get a very slow shutter speed to really stretch out the lines traced out by the moving water. These are two of the long exposures both were 30 seconds at f/16, creating smooth edges to the small rapids in this creek.
I went out for a photo shoot of the Elbow Falls in Kananaskis, Alberta with a couple of fellow photographers last week. The flow of the water and the textures created by the currents and the rocks were mesmerizing.
The river is still rising from the spring runoff from the snow. Spring was late and so is the peak of the high water from the melting snow and ice in the mountains. The flow is very different from the rest of the seasons. The waterfall is engulfed right now so that the normal lip is overrun. This creates a very different face for the falls which is great to explore with a camera. Here are a few from the edge and around.
As night took hold, blue colors were accentuated creating a cool, dreamy feeling to the long exposure images. This is one of my last from the evening.
