Attempting artsy photos at Bakers Falls Sep 07, 2011
Walking around the loop trail at Horton’s Plains National Park you will pass Bakers Falls. It’s a nice water fall down the hill from the main trail and it’s a must to take the short detour to go down and see the falls. I went down to see the falls - and ever since I years ago saw some photos somebody had taken at a waterfall with slow shooter speed I have had a tendency to try to freeze the water in all the waterfalls I see on my travels. I did make any exceptions here at Bakers Falls.

I went to the falls and saw the water pouring down the cliffs and at one spot there was a bit of green fern growing behind the water. I figured this was the perfect subject to do some experiments with different shooter speed, aperture and the film ISO. Unfortunately I didn’t bring any tripod or any other aid so I had to do the photos hand held - fortunately I had an easy night the night before so at least my hands weren’t shaking more than usual.

I used to have an old fashioned canon SLR camera before. Then back in 2007 I got the D40 on sale so I got it - back then the model was only a few month old so now four year later it seems ancient ;)

It's 2007 model, not so old , with 10.1mp stay a good camera :)
The slr camera is always SLR ,
But i am a Nikon lover :)
The canon are faster but always if you change a model you change also and the lenses :)
Of course a tripod giving the freeze effect as you want :)
I like so much this pictures from waterfalls and fountains and I making a lot :)

An early, very cold, start of the morning. Left the hotel at 6.00 am on our way to Horton Plains National Park. Although only about 35 kilometres away it was a long drive (about 1,5 hour), due to bad…Baker’s Falls’ (and climbing up again) the track is not too difficult but certainly not easy.   The Horton Plains
