I recently purchased an ND-8 (Neutral Density) filter. Essentially what it does is reduce the amount of light passing through the lens. This allows me to take long exposure photos in brighter light conditions. I stopped by a little spot off the Eau Claire Gorge on my way back from some baby photos in Mattawa a few weeks ago to try it out. Most of these images are from 4 to 10 seconds exposure time. I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do!
