This is Fairy Glen near Betws-y-Coed in the Snowdonia National Park in Wales.

I wanted to get some long exposure shots of the river flowing through the gorge so I visited late in the afternoon so the sun wasn't shining down directly into the Glen.

This meant that light levels were lower and there would be less problems with contrast.

I composed to include the large rock as foreground interest so the bottom of the frame wasn't blank.

I cropped out the sky as it was uninteresting and added nothing to the image.

While carefully walking over the many rocks to get into position I noticed that when the sun hit the trees in the distance their reflection in the water really stood out.

Having set the tripod and camera up I waited for the sun to hit the trees before making my exposures.

Tripod, mirror lock-up and self-timer used.

Canon EOS 20D with EF 17-40mm @ 39mm.

6sec @ f16 @ ISO100.
