Beautiful stream in Hillsborough, New Hampshire USA. Taken 3/20/11 after a long and snowy winter. I was up in the area to meet with my builder! I am building my “dream home”, since I was a kid, I always wanted to live in log home! I am building in this area and it is just so peaceful and beautiful!!!

I am dedicating this image to Christine! I would not be able to do any of this without her and she also puts up with me when we are driving around taking pictures! ;)

I have to be honest, I have been trying to teach myself how to get that “silky look” to the water and this is the closest and best image I have taken so far! Many thanks to all who I have learned from, I am getting there! :) I hope!

Nikon D300, Photomatix and finished in Picnik (1 raw image), handheld, 200 ISO, aperture setting, f/25, 1/15 seconds exposure time.

I welcome any comments on how to improve this image or how to get this effect!
