Focal Length:62mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

Another shot using nature to frame water. Click the back arrow to see a shot framing water from yesterday.

This shot had some blown-out areas (overexposed) on the water. It is a very beautiful spot on the Santiam River, but not an amazing photo by any means.

I made the photo better by running it through some light and color filters. Now I think it looks like water in the moonlight. Although it wasn’t. It was a grey day without any sort of spectacular lighting.

This is a great spot to photograph. It’s the rapids on the Santiam River at Waterloo County Park in the one-horse town of Waterloo, which is northeast of Lebanon, Oregon. If you’re ever in the area and want to try your hand at some water shots, you can shoot from the bridge above, or wander the woodland path down to this spot on the water.

I go here at least once a month to shoot. I’ve even played paparazzi before and taken shots of unsuspecting fishermen there.
