Come join along the water's never ending journey.  I share with you the great adventure of water in motion captured as it flows not through video but through stills.  Captured along the great Truckee river like never seen before.  I hope that you enjoy these long exposure shots.  All in all took about 300 shots and just these turned out.  Long exposure shots are challenging yet fun and rewarding.

Thought it was 1000, the last one is along the best shots I have seen.
It also show us that we don't have to fly miles out to get good shot.
Thanks again for sharing.

Wow thanks a ton for that.  And to be honest this ND1000 filter has been the best accessory for my MP.  I am now always trying to find a place to be able to use it no matter where I am and in fact trying to look up places lol.  I just wish I was near an ocean then I would be in heaven with this filter.

Yes about a week ago but not as good because you really need a lot of the water in the pic to get the true effect.  Thank you

Thank you very much.  It is the Freewell ND1000.  I got from Amazon but can also get from their site https://freewellgear.com/ and eBay as well.  They have for both the MA and MP.

Thank you I was very surprised it would turn out at all.  To get this one that turned out it took about 50 shots.  It turned out to be my favorite as well.

Great stuff, I just bought 3 directly from freewell, 1, 1000 for Mavic Pro and a 1/1000 & 1/2000 for Mavic Air not sure what I can do with the 1/2000, but hey we’ll have some fun with it, including 5/10 day delivery for €40 less than I can buy them here. Thanks for that.

Your very welcome.  Yeah that ND2000 will be even harder to get a good shot because during the day you are looking at a 3"-5" exposure time.  That is the amount of time your AC would have to be still in order to not have the rest of the image blurry.  Very difficult.  The ND1000 you typically set your exposure to 1.5-2" and that is really hard to get a non blurry image.

Thank you buddy I just notice that there has been interest with this as of late so figure I will give my experience with it to try and help others.  Thanks for stopping by my guide thread.  have you gotten a ND1000 filter?  I am telling you is well worth the $30. Takes the footage to a whole new level.
