Today, the clouds were much thicker, and it was raining. I walked through the gorge next to my building, after all "Ithaca is Gorges". The leaves on the trees were beautiful. I took a few photos. I realized that I needed a tripod because it was fairly dark, so I ran to my car and got it.
I took a few photos of the trees, but then I noticed the slow swirling on the side of the stream. There were some leaves floating. I took a time lapse photo to capture the swirls.
I hope you enjoy.
- Many times I don't have my tripod with me. Sometimes I set the camera on a rock or a fence to steady it.
- Recently when taking photos without a tripod, I put the camera in burst mode. I can then take a few photos in a row by holding down the shutter button. I'm not depressing or releasing the shutter button on the middle photos, so this helps to reduce the movement of the camera.
