Well, running water photos has run its course.... I know, a poor pun. Learned what I wanted to learn on how best to capture silky water. Now on to another technique... dusk and night sky photography.
Here are a few samples of what I have learned so far.
From the rains on the left to sun lit clouds on the right, blue sky in between... over the Rocky Mountains.
After the sun sets and before complete darkness, is called the blue hour.
On to capturing the milky way rising from the pines a few hours later.
Am guessing the bright spot is the sun reflecting off a satellite. It is there every night in the same location.
Really wanted to capture a shooting star, but that happens by chance.
The ones I saw were a short streak then gone. Split seconds...
How were these images captured? By a SONY RX10 III camera, lens set at 24 mm, f-stop 2.4, ISO 3200, exposures at 15, 20 and 30 seconds, with a two second delay. Pulled out an old very heavy tripod to eliminate camera shake.
And so the COVID-19 normal is avoiding others, learn something new, practice and sanitize. Now you know taking these photos I was far removed from the danger of meeting other people. Though the danger of bears, cougars or other critters that go thump in the night, well... don't stray far from the vehicle.
Stay healthy and safe my friends,
