Mckenzie Creek Spring

Here's a different take on the lovely creek pictured yesterday. The photo above is getting to be a fairly cliche way of dealing with moving water but it has been a challenge for me to learn how to achieve this misty, silky effect and capture the sun dapples at the same time. Often, in fact, working through cliches is how I learn - I see photographs I like and then try to reproduce them. Sometimes I succeed but I whether or not I succeed I always learn more about my camera and about photography.Click here to see what this creek looked like in January when the water was higher and it was a cloudy day. Mckenzie Creek is in Thetis Lake Regional Park.

I don't think this is a cliche shot at all! I love the way the water looks. I need to try this.
