Default November Rapids after a long spell of rain

Hello friends and photographers!

At the end of November I was very occupied with trying to catch "movement" in som water-shots.

If you are wondering about the color of the water, it actually is a little brownish-red, because the area that feeds these rapids is of high iron-contents and has many moores with lots of peat in it - hence the "strange" color of the water.


Just to give you an idea what the scene looked like, here is another shot with some better overview:

I was out there in the wild, together with my son-in-law Alasdair - he with his D90 and I with my D300 - and we were shoothing rapids all afternoon.

Here is a shot he took of me, just as I shot the above pictures.




Take care!

Great pics Walter. This is how I broke a couple of ribs back in June.....trying to get to close to the water for the pic. It appears your a bit out on the edge here too. I hope his D-90 held its own against your 300. Time well spent I believe.

Thank you for your kind words about the pics, emtyquiver.

If one wants to get the best posistion for a shot, one tends to take a few risks

In order to get the first shot, I had to stand right there on the edge (it was slippery too, since we had freezing conditions the night before). I was a bit apprehensive, but mostly of loosing the camera really, since I didn't have it insured.

Just to be on the safe side, I kept the neckstrap around my neck, even though the camera itself was monted on the tripod, and every move was carefully planned and care taken not to loose camera, tripod, foothold - or alltogether!

His D90 stood up to the test, yes! And I now have a brand new D300s - fully insured for such cases...


Best regards,
Walter_S
