North Cascades National Park is bisected by Ross Lake National Recreation Area. This area consists of several reservoirs that feed hydro-electric plants operated by Seattle Light. This was of interest to us since my Hubby had been an operator at Los Angeles' Gorge power plants in the Owens valley. This plant had four generators in one plant while the ones Hubby operated were each in different buildings separated by several miles. Behind the plant was a garden, currently being renovated. A lovely cascading stream ran along side so I thought I would try different shutter speeds to see which effect I preferred.
1/25 of a second smooths out the water.
1/400 of a second stops the motion and shows the individual drops. Which do you like better?
