We spent about an hour or so working in and around the Eddinger falls and then hit the road for Blomidon. By the time we got there, it was late morning and the sun was beginning to really cut through the trees and over-light the scene. This makes it difficult to do long exposures, since having a slower shutter speed relies on a low-light situation (A Neutral density filter would help with this, I'll be sure to have one for next time).
Here was the problem for me at Blomidon: there were several trees that had fallen down and were blocking the view. I did take a few shots, but they were mostly unusable, and not very interesting.
I picked up my 85mm lens and dialed it in for some shots at 1/1000th of a second or faster. I really only took one of these that I liked, and they pretty much all look the same. However, there's a real drama to the way the water splashes about, and I really like how crisp it appears in the photo.
