Once again, capturing the beauty of nature, stunning, I can almost feel that water

Behind The Lens

Location
Edessa, Pella, Macedonia, Greece. At the historic waterfalls.
Time
Around 1.00pm. (Winter)
Lighting
Due to it being January the available light level was low, I wanted to get a shot showing the movement of the water as opposed to a static water shot so I set the aperture as wide as I could to bring in as much light as possible but within a short space of time. I did not have a tripod to hand and so had to keep the exposure time to less than 1 - 2 seconds.
Equipment
Camera: Canon 60D Lens: Canon 18-55 f5.6 (kit lens) @ f8.
Inspiration
A friend of mone wanted to learn the technique of the "flow motion". to get a better idea I took this shot for her to use as a referance and it came out far better than I expected, seeing as it was taken hand held without a tripod I did not expect it to come out so well as it was just a referance shot.
Editing
Only a conversion from RAW to jpg.
In my camera bag
Camera's: Canon 60D, Canon 5D mk3 (New). Lenses: Canon: 40mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8, 24-105 USM L f4, 55-250 EFS f4, Tokina 11-16mm (Wide Angle) f2.8. Remote trigger and various filters.
Feedback
Again as is often the case with me be ready for the unexpected. When going somewhere new try to take as much equipment as you think you may need but, keep it in moderation. Such as this place it is a cocophany of steps and inclines and in a couple of places muddy pathways, had I been carrying all I normally do I would have not enjoyed or appreciated the splendour of the place as much as I did, I only took what I thought I would need, not only that being January you never know if you will get rained off or not so no point taking equipment you will not need.
