Milky Sunset Waters of the Columbia River
Tuesday night I was standing in my kitchen just after putting my son to bed and noticed out my window that there was this amazing sunset... and I was missing it. I made a promise to myself not to miss the sun going down the next night. And I wanted to make it different than the other sunset photos I have taken in the past.
So last night I headed out with my camera and a few neutral density filters, which until this point I have only used on fast moving water during daytime, never really at dusk. My destination was my favorite local spot for sundown - Chinook Landing. I arrived just in time for the sun to be hitting the horizon and after it sunk below, I captured this slow shutter shot, which makes the waters milky smooth. I love the results, and I hope you do too because I will be using this method again!
