Roaming Alongside the Eno River

After a long, somewhat involuntary hibernation through winter, our weather has finally stabilized near perfection. Frankly, I’ve grown tired of being cooped up behind my computer and don’t want to let our short, “pre-heat” period go to waste. Back in January I bought a neutral density filter, which allows me to use longer exposures in daylight. Specifically, I wanted to be able recreate the soft, moving appearance of so many photographers’ water photos. It’s been nearly three months and I hadn’t even used my new filter beyond simple test images. So I sought out a location where I would be guaranteed some potential water images, landing me at Eno River State Park just outside Durham, NC.

While the Eno River did indeed present some potential, I was rather disappointed with the rest of the park. It’s hard to judge a scenic area when all the trees are still missing their leaves, but nonetheless this park was primarily just winding trails through woods with little else to attract the eye. At least I got to experiment with and learn a little bit about using filters!
