Smith Creek below Anna Ruby Falls

Smith Creek below Anna Ruby Falls.
 
Wednesday night my friend George Mraz and I decided to get up on Thursday morning and drive to Anna Ruby Falls to photograph. It was cloudy and perfect conditions for rivers and waterfalls. I will put together a video later today hopefully and get it out tonight or tomorrow. The temperature was in the mid to upper 30’s, so perfect for a nice little hike. When we finished photographing the falls, and me doing my video about filters and composition, we started hiking back down. Along the path we spotted this gem, a log covered with icicles. I worked several different angles before finding that getting my tripod to ground level enabled me to capture the icicles with virtually the same pattern as the water flowing over the rocks. This angle also allowed me to isolate the icicles against a darker background to have them stand out a little more. Slowing the exposure down to 1/4 of a second made the water more of a solid color that would aid in the composition as well. I love finding something like this when we didn’t even notice it walking up due to the angle of the log. Great morning of shooting!
