I wanted to try something different at the very popular 'Valley View' area. I noticed the glowing rocks under the swiftly moving water and glimpses of the reflected cliffs on top of the water. So I used my very dark filter to make a 30-second exposure in the middle of the day that shows the bottom of the river as well as a bit of reflection from the cliffs behind. Also, the clouds were moving quickly so you can almost feel them moving in the sky in this image.
