It seems I have been slack in updating my photog blog. I could give a thousand excuses but they would all be lies!! The real reason is because I have been lazy in processing images that I took a while back. This particular image is from Yoho National Park in British Columbia. Traveling from Calgary to Vancouver Island we drove through the park on the Trans-Canada Highway and happened to be driving at sunrise. As I looked in the rear-view mirror I saw the sun kissing the top of the mountains and knew it was going to be a good shot. Leaving the warmth of the truck I scrambled down to the river bank to set up.
I wanted to try a long exposure shot as I had recently acquired a few neutral density filters and I wanted to try them out. This shot is a combination of tiny aperture, low ISO, long shutter speed, a tripod, remote shutter release, circular polarizing filter, an ND4, an ND8 and a graduated ND4 filter. I promise I will write about what all those things mean in another post. For now I just want to post this image and try to get back to a reasonably regular posting schedule. I have a number of tutorial posts that I plan to write in the next month or two so keep an eye out for them.
