Had the best camping trip in recent memory over Easter weekend. T’was the kind where I DIDN’T SLEEP OUT-OF-DOORS WITH ONLY A THIN PIECE OF NYLON “PROTECTING” ME FROM ALL OF NATURE.
Owing to our hosting a family Easter brunch, we paid our friends a visit during their weekend camping stay at Goldstream. All the relaxation, none of the uncomfortable freezing!
Plus, there was a frickin’ high-end playground just down the path!
Here’s Kit Kat with her bestie, Kairi.
We decided to go geocaching (using million-dollar satellites to find Tupperware in the woods), and set off for adventure!
We only found one of our two caches (despite Quinn braving a rushing stream BAREFOOT and searching the other side for far longer than seemed reasonable while we shouted suggestions to him from the other side), but fun was still had by all.
At the end of a long path and many flights of stairs was this beautiful waterfall.
Denise had asked me about long exposure shooting, so I shot some examples to show her.
The differences are bolded above. Frozen action = fast shutter speed and, to compensate, wide aperture to let more light in in that short period of time.
Creamy dreamy long exposure action = slow shutter speed and, to compensate for all the light streaming in, a shallow aperture to let in less light.
Oo! We found one of our geocaches that day!
One more waterfall ’cause ooOOhh. aaAAhh.
