Wow...60 looks and not a single comment? Anyway, I like them...especially the second. The "silk" hasn't been blown out (as is usually customary with these types of pics), and it really shows the speed and motion of the water.

Thanks. Yeah the water was absolutely roaring through there. On the second one it's kinda hard to tell but the torrent is actually split into forks and the second fork trails off behind our view. It's a little hairy getting in there to find a better angle and the whole area is pretty overgrown so I don't think it's worth risking life and limb for more shots. I couldn't even figure out how to get the tripod set up for that second shot.

Both images are stunning! Fantastic work on these. Could you explain your set up a bit? Did you use an ND filter to keep from blowing out the highlights? What kind of shutter speed did you use to get these?

Very nice work, I am anxious to get out and try it on my own!

I'm curious to know if a polarising filter was used for these shots?

Thank you. No filters, just 6AM overcast day. I probably should have tried the CP or GND though.
