Bow Falls

A beautiful day for a trip to Banff. It was not a photography trip but a trip to showa visitor the mountain town and the mountains. I did get a chance to make a few images while going from here to there.

This is Bow Falls below the Banff Springs Hotel. The water was rough and turbulent. I put on a 10 stop neutral density filter (Thing a dark grey piece of glass that you can hardly see through, almost like the glass for a welders mask). To get enough light to make an image the shutter need to stay open a long time. For this exposure it was 30 seconds. Over that time the water seems smooth since it capture all the ripples and waves over that 30 seconds into one image.
