Hillsborough River State Park - Time to Check it Out

You know you take the things & places close by for granted some times!   Hillsborough River State Park is only a few minutes from me & I have not visited the park in awhile so I spent a couple of hours there recently.   

With all the rain we have received this summer (sorry to all of you in the drought stricken areas) a good bit of the park was under water but it also created an actual "rapids" in the rocky part of the river which is usually just water flowing past some rocks! 

I was not there at the best time for light, mid-day, so I decided to do some long exposures.   The moving water turns to silk with this method of shooting.  I used a 9 stop variable neutral density filter to get the long exposure even in the bright light. 

With all the green and great tree shapes this was a terrific place to use my Infrared converted camera as well.  
If you haven't been to a Florida state park lately, I highly recommend this one or any other park near you.  You experience the "Real Florida" at these beautiful places across our state!

That is all for now.
