Silver Tongue

Today’s image is one of the last shots I was able to shoot on a quick weekend trip to Damascus, Virginia a few Sundays ago. All that remains of the beautiful colors of fall is the leaf litter along the banks of the river but the vibrant greens of the mountain laurel persist. While I’ll miss the colors, I’m excited to shoot these waters again with a fresh blanket of snow lining the shores. Now all I need is the snow!

Gear: Canon 60D, Canon EF-S 18-135mm, CPL

Settings: 33mm, ISO100, f/16, .6 seconds

Processing: Adobe Lightroom 3, Adobe Photoshop CS5, OnOne PhotoTools 2.6

    LOL – With that title I wondered what I was in for on this visit.
    I love how that awesome water is flowing out of the upper right corner of the shot. Nice composition, Curt. :-)
