  1. A great pity my visit to Goblin State Park didn’t result in anything like this image … 😉
    The photographer really captured the bizarre eeriness of the landscape of such rock formations in this great shot !

    • Hello, M-R!
      Effect of the long exposure
      Long exposure causes motion blur of a subject in a wider range of situations and atmospheric conditions.
      ND (neutral density) filter is done to achieve effects such as a shallower depth of field.

      Long-exposure photography or time-exposure photography involves using a long-duration shutter speed to sharply capture the stationary elements of images while blurring, smearing, or obscuring the moving elements. The paths of moving light sources become clearly visible. (Wikipedia)

      The following example photo blurred a flow of the water.
      The author of the post photo blurred a flow of the cloud, and added the unique mood to the scenery by long exposure.
