Henrys Fork

Henrys Fork River, Idaho. September 23, 2012.

(Note:  All pictures may be enlarged by clicking on them once or twice.)

Since there was smoke forecast for the Tetons on our last day in West Yellowstone, Betsy and I visited some more of the thermal areas in Yellowstone and explored part of neighboring Idaho.  We visited Mesa Falls in Idaho (you know how we are about waterfalls) and found some autumn color along Henrys Fork River between the upper and lower falls.  The picture above was taken from an overlook between the two falls.

Henrys Fork River, Idaho. September 23, 2012. This photo was taken with a 5.9 second exposure.

I had time to play around with my neutral density filter and I got this picture.  I like the way the water of the rapids was smoothed out by the longer exposure.

    I find moving water difficult to capture successfully. I don’t know much about exposure times to get a better result. Thank you for sharing, George. Happy New Year!

    Hello George, Happy New Year, i have not been posting since before Christmas! That is an amazing shot, I have an ND filter but haven’t got to use it, maybe i should go out and try it too! I love water flowing but i am very far from one at the moment.

    Very pretty. The rippling water and the fall colors combine to make a very engaging picture.

    This effect is very interesting, George! It looks a bit different but you can’t tell why, very cool.

    I like the way the whitecaps look sort of like someone has been writing on the water!
