I went to Hidalgo Falls after work on Thursday hoping to shoot in the rain. I had never shot in the rain and wanted to experiment on how the images would look in the rain using a ND filter for long exposure. The forecast all day and through the night was for thunderstorms. All day was rainy, dark clouds just what I wanted. But as usually Mother Natures has her own plans. Driving out to Hidalgo Falls it was raining but a few miles before arriving the rain stopped. I hiked down to the falls and searched for the shots I wanted to take. I kept looking up to see rain falling in the distance but the 2 hours I was there it never rained, disappointing but there were still some good images to be had. The lighting and clouds made for some good shots and I particular like this one. This shot was not easy to take was standing in knee deep water with my tripod about 18 inches above the water. I had to compose the and focus and then screw on the ND filter all while the water was rushing by, can be a little nerve racking but well worth it when you get the shot.
My camera settings: F/16, 1 sec, ISO 100, focal length 16mm, 9 stop ND filter
Equipment: Nikon D750, Nikon 16-35mm f4 lens
