A small waterfall in Mt. Rainier Natl Park, Washington. I used a slow shutter speed, and a tripod.

Hi, Shirley,

I am learning how to shoot waterfall shots, so could you help me out by providing some specific details on how you took this shot. It is a gorgeous photo by the way. Unfortunately, mine have not turned out as well as I would like.

I am interested in the following info:

ISO speed
Shutter Speed
Aperture Setting (although not so important)
General speed of waterfall itself (extremely fast, fast, medium, slow, very slow)
Any filters used, e.g. N.D. Filter

I am also interested in how you metered the shot?
