This image was taken in early spring of last year. I took a drive out west looking for photo ops when I came across an area of spring runoff. Using a 3 stop ND filter, I took a variety of photographs, experimenting with different settings. From this one image, I made a lower and higher exposure copy and blended the three images creating an HDR look photograph.
The water was very brown and frothy and because of the slow shutter speed the camera captured the slow moving whirlpool which created an interesting foreground.
