As well as an opportunity to photograph miniatures, Gleno also has a really nice waterfall hidden away.
On Friday night I took a series of pictures using long exposures to try and capture the waterfall. Whilst I love the effect, this introduced a new dimension for me – dealing with a breeze.
Ideally, I wanted the water to have that lovely motion feel but the rest of the scene to be still. It’s not obvious in the shot above, (maybe more so on the jump), but when you look at the leaves top left they just aren’t that sharp.
During session, I took about 20 photographs. I’m still working through them to see if there are better leaf sets or if I need to rethink the approach and maybe take a shot at high shutter speed and then one with a slower speed to blend together for a best of both worlds solution.
I’d expect I’ll post a few more waterfall shots soon enough.
