Picture of river using a 10 seconds long exposure

10 second long exposure picture of a river

In this picture I have used a 10 seconds long exposure to create the foggy and metallic look on the river. I love the look running waters gets from long exposures.
It has to be pretty dark to be able to get long exposures or use a special filter. I don’t have a filter like that so I had to wait for twilight. The forest seems very different when it gets dark. A bit spooky 😉

Check out this long exposure picture I took of a rocky beach.

In this photo I used an exposure time of 15 seconds to try get the “foggy” effect you can see on the ocean. Very fun way of photographing although very time consuming and cold when you have temperatures of -4C. 😉
