Waterfall Pictures

Went out to Hogg's Falls in the upper valley today to practice taking pictures of waterfalls, and learned something new. For the first time I tried taking the camera off the 'automatic' setting which I use almost all the time, and using 'speed priority mode' instead. I could then set the speed either quite fast or quite slow.

Shooting at a fast speed, in my camera's 'sports' setting - the first picture below, I almost stopped the water falling. But at the slow speed - the second picture below is taken at 1/4 second exposure; slow enough you should really use a tripod, I get a very different picture. And I like the result!
