Devil’s Brook on Christmas   4 comments

Lots and lots of rain, which means that Devil’s Brook was absolutely gushing. The stream photos depend very sensitively on the time of exposure: if you take a very short exposure, the action is frozen. If you take a long exposure, all the action is smoothed away and you get a tranquil effect. The problem, of course, is that this stream did not seem tranquil — it was frisky and energetic. I tried to explore exposure times that demonstrated this.

Several droplet photos, but the light was not great and I can’t get the noise reduction right. I’ll keep working on that, but I suspect these photos aren’t going to be much better even under smarter processing.
