Waterfall Wednesday, one of the best days of the week.
Waterfalls are one of my favourite things to photograph because there are almost endless possibilities on how to shoot them - fast shutter speeds to freeze the water falling, slow shutter speeds to make the water silky, close ups of water on the rocks, or falling off the precipice, the streams or rivers around the waterfall, and the list goes on.
This is the beautiful and iconic Devil's Punchbowl waterfall in Arthurs Pass photographed from the Avalanche Peak track, rather than on the Devlils Punchbowl track itself. It goes a pretty cool perspective look down or straight onto the waterfall, rather than above it. I took this on the way down from Avalanche Peak when @.noba and I went up
This image is a blend of 6 photos that I shot consecutively, and blended to give the 'slow shutter' effect, as I don't have a 58 mm ND filter (yet), I could not use a slow enough shutter speed in camera to blur the water enough for my liking. All up its about a 1/2 second exposure from blending.
Let me know your favourite waterfall you have visited, or one on your bucket list to visit in the future.
