Daily Photo Tour - Water Off a Grizzly's Back


I have to admit, I'm a sucker for waterfalls. Whenever I visit California Adventure, I consistently find myself driven to Grizzly Peak. The only tough part is deciding which side of the peak to take in. You can't go wrong with either!

A lot of waterfall shots use a slower shutter speed to get the silky smooth look of flowing water. I love those types of shots, but I thought it would also be cool to freeze that motion for this shot. The texture from freezing the water's motion has a more rugged feel, which seems to suit the Golden State area of California Adventure.
