Yes, I Do Have a Tripod
Lens: Yes, 2 Camera: Yep Photo Location: Musconetcong River 
Posted By: luftfluss, 07-20-2015, 09:03 PM

I use a tripod far less often than I ought to... but today, I did!

I also stacked 2 NDx8 filters.

It was one of those breezy days, sun dodging clouds so rapidly that it seemed like the quality of light changed every few seconds. It was also hot and humid and buggy. Welcome to summer in New Jersey.

Gorgeous all of them, but I like number 1 best.

I miss being able to shoot waterfalls. We don't have those where I live now and it's refreshing to me to see shots like this. TFS

I had to laugh. The category listing for camera........"yep" thanks I needed that laugh.

excellent captures, especially the first which has a very clear background and the beautiful silk flowing water in the foreground. Curious to the SS used?

Thanks! I definitely could have used some cool refreshment while I was out in the 90 degree heat!

Mine is a Velbon from the '80's. I had a lightweight Manfrotto, but it sacrificed itself a few years ago, saving me from a nasty, rocky fall.

Thanks, Bob. #1 is 3s, #2 is 30s, and #3 is 15s.

doubling up on the ND's really helped with the images in the light I would think, great job for sure.

Thank you, gentlemen.

Exactly, Bob, even though I still managed to blow a couple of highlights. I'd hit the shutter button, and during the exposure the light would go from cloudy to sunny... and sometimes back to cloudy again.

They're all good but the first one is gorgeous. The water almost looks like quick silver before it cascades over where it then turns into silk.

Thanks, I hope that someday I will be as good of a photographer as the DA21 is a lens.
