How beautiful it is to excel, and the goodness of giving from your heart.

Story behind the image…

Sometimes the highlight of a trip is not at all what you expect it to be.  I rented a beach house on the coast and three fellow photographers joined me for a long weekend.  We were all excited about hanging out together at the coast and anticipated some great seascapes.  Upon arriving at the beach house we were pleasantly surprised to find a waterfall in our backyard.  While we all had a great time photographing the coast, we all agreed that our own little waterfall was the highlight!  In order to get a slow enough shutter speed to blur the water during the day, I added my Singh Ray Vari-ND and dialed it down shooting to see what shutter speed best captured the blur effect I was after.  Image captured with Nikon D4, AF-S 28-300mm 3.5-5.6 VR @ 185mm.  ISO 100 f16 @ 1/4 sec
