Slow Motion River Reflections
Photographing reflections is so much fun because you never know what you’ll get. At first, you probably won’t even see them but once you shoot a few, your eye becomes trained to recognize reflections immediately and you’ll start looking for them everywhere. The colors here are from the blue sky and green trees with a slight bit of orange from the canyon walls. I like shooting both to freeze the motion, which gives a glass-like look, and using a slow shutter speed such as this one. Tip: The best time to get good reflections is very early or very late in the day. This is a hand held shot of Virgin River at .5 second and f/22.
