I wander to a nearby stream from our campsite to relax, perhaps a cool dip, to enjoy what nature has to offer. And took a few shots first, and enjoyed it. Hope you enjoy it too.

Camera settings:
Shutter priority
shutter speed 4.5secs

i played a little bit on contrast & saturation just to get my prefered hues & color.

Hello Jowel, this is beautiful, well done to you the water looks great.. you captured it well.

Im still to capture a decent photo of water like this...one just has to get it "all" correct!

Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hi Jowel,

A beauty, Jowel. The water has an extra-silky look here, due to your long exposure. Really beautiful. DoF is large enough to keep everything sharp, the colours are very nice to look at. Excellent work.

Good that you have taken a closer look on what's happening downstream. Thanks for capturing it & sharing, views like this are most of the time overlooked by a mere passerby. Really a success that you're able to showcase it here in TL. Good job, especially the settings you've made to come up with this effect.

Beautiful picture, making the most of the long exposure time
Thanks for sharing

Merhaba Jowel
Sorry for the delay to answer your nice comment; I've been away for 3 months.
I see in this beautiful bucolic picture of yours a perfect mastery of exposure and technique.
Pleasing and relaxing mood!
Take care.
