Thanks for all the positive input, I've taken notes for my next outing.

I don't always want to carry my tripod with me on these long hikes with the scouts so I often use my mono pod as a walking staff and camera support. Is there any suggestions about how I can still get the silky affect with the water without loosing sharpness in the picture?

Mike

Mike,

A monopod steadied against a tree has worked for me in the past. Another option is to get your self a Gorillapod which is a mini but practically sturdy tripod which can easily fit ina backpack. You can rest it on the ground, on a rock, or even wrap the leds around a tree branch. There are different sizes for different sized cameras. Check it out at http://joby.com/store/?gclid=CIvK6YqQqKECFQENDQodSTAbGA I use a Gorillapod SLR on my Nikon D300s.

well since you are shooting with a dslr, go with the gorillapod slrzoom. That is what I use, it is better design for dslr cameras over the regular slr model. The slr is more for megazooms and camera the size of the epl-1 and gf-1.

BTW, I prefer your original shot!
