A good 40 minutes drive north-west from Locarno, close to the little village Foroglio, the river Calnegia falls good 100 meter down: first from an 80 meter cliff and then cascading further through steep rocks with lots of spray and bluster – pretty spectacular!
In May the canton Ticino, Switzerland, usually experiences quite a bit of rain and the dramatic clouds indicate just another shower to come any moment.
The above shot is a 1/25 sec, f/9.0, ISO100 with a 14mm focal length on a full format camera. In order not to waste time, I did not set up the tripod which was a good decision as right after the shot heavy rain kicked in.
These two pictures were taken during a rain pause … Exposures were 4 sec. with f/5 and 6 sec. with f/6.3 respectively, using ISO100 and a neutral density filter. Focal length was 24 mm on a full format camera.
