...hidden waterfall...

Uploaded: April 28, 2005


Velvia ISO 50: ...a good friend of mine (a BP member) sent me this Fuji film a little over a year ago...
I had a pleasure of meeting another BP'er, Cora Miller, who was visiting this area (Central Texas) this month and I decided to take my old SLR and this film to shoot the water fall with her.

Very beautiful, Nobi!! Love the sheen and texture of the rock below, and, of course, that silky waterfall. #1300515

I think tech details are like; ISO50, F22, and 4 or 6 seconds, w/ a polarizer.
