Snow on the Rapid River

Piles of snow have shown up early again this year. The other morning, I took a quick opportunity to make some images while the sun was briefly shining. This is one of the (I think) three bridges at the Seven Bridges Natural Area in Kalkaska. I had the area entirely to myself this morning, and played around with a few different exposures. I settled on a 30-second exposure at f/16 to fully smooth out the swift water of the Rapid River, while maintaining detail in the sunlit snowy highlights.
This and other snowy photos are available in the Winter Landscapes gallery.
