Night Watcher by patrickzephyr

Sorry for the long delay in posting-Family Life, three daughters and shooting every chance I can have kept me away from editing but I have lots of new work that I’m really excited about and I hope to share some more soon. I know I have said this before but I have been exploring this stream for years and yet again I found a perspective I never thought to consider before. I was teaching a full-day workshop with a student and we decided to stop hear for a bit and experiment with long shutterspeeds before heading off to our sunset location and while my student was searching for compositions and setting up there tripod I turned around and spotted this composition. I took a few quick hand held shots with my wide angle lense for reference because I don’t lke to get lost behind my camera during a workshop. I went back a few times the following week at different times of day and captured a few images that I like. This is the first to make it to processing. I knew I wanted to do a night capture here, the challenges were 1) figuring out where I was going to be standing and how to get there in 10 seconds in the dark(my intervelometer died on me last week so I had to use the cameras 10 second delay) 2) focusing in the dark, and 3) staying dry and keeping my camera dry because the cascade is just off to my right and water is continuously splashing on me and the camera. Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it!
