Interesting Photo of the Day: Mossy Grotto Falls

Have you ever seen mother nature in motion? This photo was taken a few hours after dawn in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon by photographer Matt Meisenheimer. He set his camera to bulb mode and fixed the tripod where the current was mellow. Isn’t it amazing what the wireless shutter release remote can do? The long exposure gives the river a milky appearance, and the anti-glare takes care of any bright reflections, making sure the result isn’t over-saturated. Seriously, it looks like this!
