Finally made it out to Little Rocky Glen, after several weekends of trying. It’s a bit cliche, the whole long-exposure-stream-in-fall image, but it’s one of those iconic images that I find myself wanting to make year after year. The trick is trying to find new ways to make the image; in this case, a little-shot location helped keep things fresh.
I rarely hope for overcast days, but for this kind of image, overcast really works best – the light is diffused and the warm tones pop. The down side is that with the overcast came an afternoon rain shower, which left the rocks treacherously slippery, especially where fallen leaves had gathered. I managed to only fall once, nearly taking out the tripod I was carrying. Nothing broken (me or the gear), but I’ll probably limp for the next day or so. But what the hell, I got the images.
