Waterfall Wednesday

 

No tripod, No ND filter, No circular polarizer, no cable shutter release. Just me and my camera.

Wednesday would not be the same without a silly social media meme. Today’s theme is #WaterfallWednesday. Share your favorite photos of waterfalls on every social media platform imaginable. Of course, I fell right into this meme and posted a few photos on Twitter and Instagram.

Of course, there must be an obligatory blog post, so let us begin. The first waterfall is found in Philadelphia. The small waterfall harks back to the days when the Schuylkill River provided water for Philadelphia residents. The photo was taken on a lower level of the Waterworks and Boathouse row can be seen just past the waterfall. No ND filter, only slower shutter speeds as allowed by a tripod.

These two photos were taken at Longwood Gardens where I used a B+W ND10 circular ND filter to learn the basics of daytime long exposure photography. Working with this filter exposed me to a new world of photography that lingers to this day.

The title photo was taken in South Iceland. The fall pictured above is called Skogafoss and no, I don’t know how to pronounce it correctly. I had no tripod, no filters, no shutter release cable – it was simply me and the camera in front of this magnificent waterfall.
