This delightful little spot is right beside the road. the advantage to this is that I can park my truck and have all of my equipment available. I’m working with long exposures and multiple exposures. To show movement through the work. In this case I wanted the water to create a strong compositional line through the image. I work the scene extensively, multiple exposures on one frame, very and length of exposure using neutral density filters, various polarizations.
The final shot was an 18 second exposure, neutral density and polarizer stack, polarized to remove almost all reflection. Converted to black-and-white in Photoshop and blue tent at it, to emphasize the coldness.
