Arizona Falls

Last April I featured two photos from Arizona Falls, a park on the east side of Phoenix that features a small hydroelectric plant.  You can see them here and here.  Recently, I visited there again to take some photos of the waterfalls and to play with different exposures.  Using a slower shutter speed produced this one that I quite like.

I never visited this area in my 30 years in Phoenix. Now it wll have to be on one of my to-do lists.

So beautiful.
You gave me the idea how to learn further with my camera.

Waterfalls at low light will produce the ribbony effect when the shutter speed is slowed to about 1/15th of a second. It is impossible to take a photo at that slow speed in normal light, of course, because the f-stop cannot be high enough to prevent an over-exposure.
