The Daily Snap – April 8
This one was taken a couple of years ago in spring. It was the first time I tried the built in ND filter in the G9 to make long exposures (this one was 15 seconds at f7.1) and the long exposure really showed the movement in the grasses due to the wind. With the Canon G11, I am constantly making long exposures using both the built-in ND filter and also using my Singh-Ray P-sized 5-stop ND filter. In a place like Cochrane that is often windy, the long exposures give me a painterly look that I enjoy a lot.
