While waiting to photography the Foxes I decided to walk across the street and photograph the St Vrain River which was running rather high & strong from the annual spring runoff from the mountains. I figured since it was right there and we were waiting, I may as well make the best of the opportunity that I had to photograph it as it has been on my list awhile now to capture.For this shot I used my Sony a550 and a Minolta 18-200mm lens, along with a Fotodiox CPL and ND8, all bolted on my tripod. Shot at f18|2 second exposure| iso 200There is just something about shots like this I have always loved. Completely. It just has this feeling of relaxation and tranquility about it. Hard to describe really.
