We had a beautiful and warm day today, and although it couldn’t make me forget my computer troubles, it still made life much easier 😀
File this image under “Found Waterfalls”, because I didn’t look for it, it was just there, around the bend, on a steep forest road.
The Tamron 17-50/2.8 VC is ideal for that kind of images. It’s wide enough to capture the scene, and with stabilization turned on, I can go down to 1/4s, and that already makes the water smooth and silky. Sure, you may need more than one attempt, but hey, a waterfall doesn’t run away, does it?
Update: I normally don’t modify Images of the Day after they have been published. This time I do it. The image as you see it now, is a new version. I have made it in Vienna after I saw the original on a big monitor. To the left you see the image as it was originally published. In my opinion the water was too blue, the image too cool and generally lacking contrast. I like it much better now, but decide for yourself.
