Description

I came upon this vantage point on the Exeter River while shooting images for commissioned work. I have never seen it photographed before or since and would never have investigated this river when the iconic rivers of NH like the Swift, Saco, and Androscoggin are so close by. Initially I shot from the opposite bank, but found this angle more pleasing. The spring ferns were fantastic, as was the reflected light on the water from the sky. The water levels can change drastically on such a small river, so I was never sure what I would encounter. I needed to focus stack several images since I was inches from the ferns - several at fast shutter speeds and higher ISO's to make sure they were sharp, as the plan for end use were mural sized images over 10 feet high. In order to get the entire scene, I shot a focus stacked series using a horizontal orientation then panned upward slightly and shot the sky and upper treeline. The two sections were then stitched in PS.
