Excellent photography Ziggy. You've really captured the 'feel' of the area.

.....while all these are really good, I like White Clay Creek best. For me it is a perfect presentation of a scene that makes me feel good when looking at it.

Hi Bob,

It also happens to be my favorite as well. As a flyfisherman, I really appreciated walking along the stream and looking for areas where I thought trout would be lurking. This was a beautiful little creek and I'm glad that was able to experience it.

By the way, this was an image composed of 5 frames, each shot at 1/3 exp comp. and blended together using Photomatix Light software. I purposely slowed down the shutter speed as I wanted the reflections of the sun to be exaggerated. It gives the impression (to me) that the stream is moving.

I thought I noticed a movement-like feature in the foam on the top of the water & thought maybe you had used a slow shutter speed with the camera on a tripod. There's a little bit of whirlpool action going on there just in front of you.

Quite peaceful-looking.

Hi Greg,


Good catch. although, I didn't have a tripod with me so, just lied down on a large rock that jutted out into the flow creating that eddie you mentioned.
I was happy with the results considering it was a hand held 5burst shot at a starting shutter speed of 1/60sec and finishing at 1/100sec.
