In my last post I described a photographic trip on which I started to experiment with the use of a neutral density filter to lengthen out exposure times when photographing moving water.

Since then I’ve spent a very pleasant half day practising this technique further on the Te Wairere, one of the gorgeous small streams that flow off the Kaimai Range. It flows down a rough bed strewn with large rounded boulders, resulting in a complex mix of cascades and deep pools.

It was a gorgeous mild spring day, with a mix of sun and cloud, lots of activity from native birds, and plenty of time to contemplate the surroundings, while also experimenting a bit more with the camera. I was happy enough with the resulting images to add four of them to my rivers and streams gallery.
