One of the reasons winter is my favourite season water. The rivers streams and waterfalls come alive with flowing water a great photographic subject. Tastes vary in how people like to see flowing water in a photograph. A faster shutter speed will freeze the motion and show the droplets in the water. A slower shutter speed blurs the motion and shows the flow of the water some like one others don’t. I’m a fan of the blurs. Upper NihitipuThe essential accessory’s for water are a polarizing filter and tripod.
Those pervading overcast skies also help to control contrast and enable longer shutter speeds.

I like blurs in water falls. If it were something like kids playing with water then I like drops. But you’d have to do that anyway since kids would be too fast for slow shutter speeds.
