Photo Of The Week: 5/20/16

This week’s photo of the week goes to Reid Northrup.

After carefully making his way down a rocky hill on a cloudy day while out exploring in Saluda, North Carolina, Northrup arrived at Little Bradley Falls. Using a Nikon D810 with a five second exposure, he managed to blur the movement of the falls, capturing the beauty of the landscape in the early morning hours.

Why we love it

We donโ€™t ever get tired of a good waterfall photo.The lighting is spot on, and you really get a sense of ย the movement of the water captured within the image. In fact, it makes us wish we were there right now. This photo instills a sense of exploration and we encourage you to go out and document your own adventures (and share them with us, of course!)

P.S. Make sure to look for a steady surface to set the camera on or have tripod handy when taking long exposures like this to prevent camera shake.
