Snug Falls - Waterfall Photography

Posted by Alex Wise on January 13, 2011

Pushing through some photos that have sat in my drafts a little too long. This was captured November 2011 err 2010 at Snug Falls after a period of light rain which created nice conditions for photographs. As it was quite breezy, I opted for a short ish exposure (3 seconds) to minimise blur around the foliage of the waterfall. It could have probably benefited from a even shorter exposure as the foliage did blur a little.

I'm a twenty something male that currently lives in Melbourne, Australia. Originally from Tasmania, I moved to Melbourne in January 2011 and have since been shooting urban and seascape long exposures around Victoria. Away from photography I'm a sucker for a nice coffee, yoyo's and a good tv series.

    A good capture there Alex. Thats the most active I have seen them where it was “safe” to access. I’m guessing things may have gotten interesting for you if the water had risen a bit more? :)

    I think the colours is the standout too.. dont mind the slight foliage movement because that water is great

    Very cool photo. I just read your article about the 8-10 stop filters for shooting long exposure. I’m just a hobby shooter but these photos are making we want a filter and a serene place to practice!
