Nanaimo River is SO wicked in the summertime.. swimming, cliff jumping.. swimming through tunnels in the rock.. checking out crayfish and salmon who inhabit the river.. I'm there 3 or more times a week in the summer.

Anyways.. camped at one of our favorite spots on Saturday night.. a few pics:





Yo head is on fire d00d!

Use a tripod - long exposure, and picture must be taken early in the morning, or at dusk, or the sky and highlights will be blown out white.

Also, a few of these are stitched from multiple pictures to make an ultra-wide angle shot.

No filters... but I wonder if there is such a thing for doing this style of photo during the day? *googles*

edit: A neutral density filter might help achieve the effect.. but I haven't tried it.

It's the long exposures that make the water look that way - no photoshop here !

Maybe it's just me, but I get this question ALL THE TIME.

Whoa - your CAMERA takes cool pictures.. what kind is it?
Let me just say it is a 5-6 year old digital that gets really poor reviews online!

Proving the point that it's not the camera - it's the experiments, it's the vision, it's the obsessive amounts of photos taken. It's the creativity. It's anything BUT the camera.

I could reproduce these pictures with almost any digital camera on the market today, really.

Sorry for the rant - it's a Minolta D'image 7. Get one on ebay for $150 or less :p
