One of the water falls on the Ingleton Waterfall Trail.

An amazing place
- the only other (serious) photographer I met was carrying a K5 ! That's really amazing !

As I went around I took shots both on Av at f8 and Tv at 1/6sec. This is the f8 version which was down to 1/50 sec due to the low light and I prefer this one to the usual longer exposure shots generally preferred.

I've not cropped it tight as I wanted to show the succession of falls in the cascade.

you are one of those photo-artists who knows how and when to use the K-5 to its fullest. There is so much going on in this image - the colors present greens of so many hues, the waterfalls expel their water with a gentle shove. (f8, and 1/50th in this light worked so well) rather that spitting the water out, it slides. the little falls on middle left of the frame adds dimension to the height of the hill. Yep, it's a keeper. V.V. nice. thanks tg

Very many thanks, Tony, for those comments.

Just for the record, you may be surprised to learn that whilst the guy I met had a K5, MY camera is a humble K-r !

What's more, whilst the guy with the K5 had a large (heavy) backpack filled with lenses and filters and was carrying a tripod (perhaps that's why he was sitting down taking a rest when I saw him ?), I was travelling light (as usual) with just my K-r fitted with the faithful Sigma 18-250mm, and a spare battery, and shooting hand held !

Thanks again

I suspect you could do fine if you used a Optio. cheers tg
