Wild horse Creek, Idaho
I usually don't take my camera when we are ATV riding with a group as no one has the patience to stop every few minutes for me to take photos. This time, however, I did take my camera on a group ride near Mackay, Idaho. We stopped to eat lunch in a beautiful wooded area by Wild horse Creek. I gulped down my lunch, then spent my time taking photos.
For you non photographers out there, sometimes it's all about luck! in order to get moving water to look soft and dreamy, you need to set your camera for a slow shutter speed which usually requires using a tripod to avoid camera shake so the still objects won't be blurry. I had no tripod, but I must have had very steady hands that day! Photographers often call this technique 'veiling' because when used on a waterfall, the result looks like a wedding veil.
For you photographers out there, here are my camera settings: 1/6 sec, f/18, 200 ISO. This was shot at midday. I used a polarizer filter and waited for the sun to go behind a cloud. I also bracketed 3 shots to get the best exposure.
