I’ve always loved pictures of rivers and waterfalls where the shutter speed is so slow as to make the water blur together like a smooth piece of silk. When we went to Linville Falls in western North Carolina a week ago, I knew I wanted to try that, so I carried a small but weighty tripod in my while hiking all around the falls. Ironically, I didn’t even end up using the tripod. Instead, I found a nice perch on the rocks and just used one of them to steady my camera.
