Hopkins Falls


A few weeks ago I traveled to what once

was a relatively nearby waterfall…


Hopkins Falls on the Hopkins River.

I wasn’t really happy with any of the photos.

I tried a slow shutter speed here,

but too much water for that silky look

that many waterfall photos have.


I used to live with in 50 kilometres of this water fall

and only visited it one less than a handful of occasions,

and never with this much water flowing.

So…it looks like back to the drawing board

as far as photographing waterfalls is concerned.

  1. Great photos. If you want to take long shutter speed photos of water use a filter which darkens the image so that you can use the longer shutter speed to give that soft look. I must get out and do some myself. This means that you can do this during the day. Hope this helps


    • Thanks Raewyn. I did have problems getting a reasonable photo….do you mean a neutral density filter? Must confess that it was just something I tried to achieve. I would like to be able to achieve that look, however, it is not one of the ‘must dos’…if you know what I mean.
