Results of rain

We had 39mm of rain yesterday/last night according to our rain gauge, so the creek is flowing nicely again. This is a quick shot from down near the swimming hole not from from the park. I didn't wander down close for a better shot as the ground was rather treacherous.

    This doesn't surprise me, given it's about 2km in a straight line from here ;-)

    The color of the the white-water is not white. I think that is a job for Brother Green (Bryan Peterson - Understanding Exposure).
  • David de Groot said:
    I think you'll find that's because the water was nowhere near clear or white when I shot it. It's the morning right after heavy rain, the water is very dirty and brown, so a long exposure will turn up the same. Sure, I could have made it white by overexposing, but you'd lose detail.

    Nice Dave. I really need to visit there sometime soon.
  • maasha said:
    Ah well,it just so happens that it appears like an artifact of using weighted metering - but if the water is dirty, then it is dirty :o)
  • David de Groot said:
    Indeed - if we don't get another downpour today or tomorrow, it'll be running a lot lower by the weekend.
    Yep, I pretty much ignored the meter anyway as with an ND400 and a Polariser on it, the meter tends to get a bit thrown out.

    Nice shot David, only water running here comes out of the tap.

    39mm....I bet you go back there for the next few days as the water clears up....you privileged.
    Do you get many leeches out there during summer times?

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    The beauty of living on the east coast :)
    Too right Garry, hopefully we'll get some nice cloud cover to smooth out any hot-spots in the light too.
    As for leaches, I haven't noticed any - Kara is usually the leach magnet, so if I'm worried, I'll just take her along ;-)

    Very nice. I think your exposure looks perfect.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Wes, no if only this bloody clear blue sky would go away, I could get out for some better ones ;-)

    Lovely silky water shot. I like the bit of green on the right too.
    39mm ! That's more than we had down here, in total, since mid September.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Jack. Yeah 39mm that day, another 11mm a few days later. No much since. We should have had at least another 10mm by now.
