The worst thing about travel photography is that you haul around every last piece of equipment you own just in case you need it.
The best thing about travel photography is that you haul around every last piece of equipment that you own because that filter you thought you had to have, but never used because you don’t do that kind of thing at all is right there – just when you need it most. Yes, there I was trekking down some forsaken path through the bush, hauling it all (though my husband was kind enough to carry my tripod…) clambering over wet rocks, setting it all up, including those neutral density filters, for a nice, long exposure that would soften the water and make the whole thing dreamlike.
I like it. In the summer, I think I might like to go for a dip, let those waters pour over my head and shoulders.
