Rocks and Water

Uploaded: October 29, 2004


This is a photograph of a river bank in Golden, CO. This was shot underneath the bridge in old town Golden. It was quite dark when I shot this (about 11:00 PM) and I had to use a flash light on the rocks in order to focus.

f11, 5 minute exposure, Kodak TCN400 print film.

Great photo, I like the stillness of the rocks against the motion of the water. #183434

Thanks Jacob, I appreciate it! I'm quite happy with how this came out. It was mostly an experiment with long exposures and moving and stationary elements. Thanks again! #877535

Nice! The water almost looks like a solid sheet :) #878119
