I stopped in Manchester on my way home from a weekend vendor event in southern Vermont. I had received a lot of requests for prints photographed at Lye Brook Falls, so it was on my radar. I did the two mile hike into the Lye Brook wilderness to reach the waterfall. When I arrived, both the flow of the falls and the bright overhead sun presented some instant challenges. It was early in the summer but it had been dry for several weeks and Lye Brook was at low flow. I wanted to make an impactful waterfall image and I was standing over a trickle. I solved this problem by getting in close so the texture of the rock and the water sliding over it, where the main feature. The bright overhead sun presented a different problem. I wanted to use a long exposure but even at f22 and ISO 100 I was still getting a pretty fast shutter speed. If only I had a neutral density filter with me. I did have several graduated neutral density filters. I selected the Singh-Ray 4 stop hard edge filter and pulled it down all the way so the clear portion wasn't visible. Voila, I had a 4 stop filter plus my polarizer pulling my exposure down to 1.6 seconds. Sometimes less than ideal conditions can force you to adapt and create an image that you might not have otherwise envisioned.
