Along the Mississippi II

Now this photograph is taken in exactly the same place as yesterdays.  The main difference in the two is this exposure is 131 seconds, yesterdays was 1/40th of a second.  Look at how smooth the water is here, look how dreamy the clouds look.  If you zoom in on the leaves of the trees they look a little blurry compared to yesterdays photo but thats ok.  This image looks better,  Even the ghost of the person fishing (they moved during the exposure) adds to the image. 

To get this long exposure I used a ten stop neutral density filter.  That filter helps me slow my shutter speed way down.
