It would not be such a powerful image if you'd shot with a slow shutter. The decisions about how best...

Re: Big Thompson River

Thanks Matt, I have seen the great falls but is was 40 plus years ago. I remember the raw power that you captured so well in your images. Big Thompson River located between Loveland and Estes Park, Co. WingShooter, Here are a few from a morning at the Great Falls on the Potomac. Virginia is the left...
