Of course I took my wife, no way she would have let me go alone
Here in NC, it’s fall leaf colors at their peak. The colors are beautiful.
I grabbed my Canon 60D and looked forward to getting some good shots for the day.
I took well over 1000 shots for the day but the majority of those came from a time-lapse video I’m working on.
Along our ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we came across Looking Glass Falls in Brevard, NC.
A lot of cars were stopped and the photogs were out. I grabbed my camera and tripod. The waterfall was beautiful.
The photo you see below is where I went out into the creek below the falls and set up on some rocks.
I set the shutter speed to 1/6 of a second to give the water a creamy, milky effect.
How I processed this photo.
I imported the photo into Lightroom 4. I cropped, set white balance and slightly adjusted exposure to bring out some of the blacks in the photo to make it darker.
Then I pulled the photo into Topaz Labs Adjust 5 and applied the “spicify” preset. That’s it.
Personally, I feel the photo is suitable for framing and this photo represents a great day I spent with my wife in the mountains of North Carolina.
Here is a short video clip of Looking Glass Falls that I shot with my Canon 60D. Check out the beautiful colors.
