Machine Falls

This is one of my favorite waterfalls to photograph!  I used to go here quite often, but we've moved a little further away now, so I don't get there as much as I used to.

Yesterday it was overcast and rainy all day.  Most people don't get too excited when its sprinkling or gray outside, but I am not most people!  I get fired up because I got to sleep until 8 and I still get to get out and make images of waterfalls in fantastic light!

This weather...overcast, grey, meh and rainy are the best time to shoot flowing water.  Because there isn't as much light, it allows you to maintain a slower shutter speed, which gives you that milky water effect.

This one was taken with my Sony A7R, Metabones Lens Adapter and Tamron 24-70mm Lens.  I also used a circular polarizer to kill reflections and had everything mounted on my Vanguard Alta Pro 283CT Tripod.
