Autumn River Flow
We recently took a late autumn walk between La Pesanca and la Foz de Moñacos in Piloña. The colder temperatures provided the peaks around Vizcares with a sprinkling of snow. Winter is coming. I wanted to get some close water shots of the Río Infierno (Hell River) with a real autumn feel of Asturias. This area is very damp, heavily forested and covered in deep green moss and lichens. The autumn leaves add a magical element.
One image I was happy with, after spending some time searching for a suitable areas. There are many potential opportunities along the route, and only restricted by the need to negotiate some fairly steep drops and slippery rocks – if you want to get to the river’s edge. f16, ISO 100, 1/6 sec at 14mm, some editing in Lightroom 5.
We set camera up at 4 or 5 points along the river. Nikon D7000, Tokina 12-24, Manfrotto 322RC2.

If you need to job doing….. She dropped the branch and refused to go in any further!
