Description: “This is a raging river in New Hampshire off Tripoli Road in the White Mountains National Forest. This is a 60-second-long exposure photograph, taken at around 1 a.m. in total darkness. Notice the Tiki torch in the background.

“I bring my camera wherever I go and am inspired by the beauty surrounding me in New England.”

Camera info: Nikon D90, kit lens, manual mode.


“The long exposure tames the raging river, changing it into a shimmering mass. Flat water on the left flows into the faster water, bringing you naturally into the photo. The texture of the stones in and around the stream is quite different from the silky river. Cool blue colors dominate, but are warmed by spots of warm orange color.”
