Early spring rain passed / 봄비가 지났어
I wander through the woods / 숲속에서 방황하고
Chasing waterfalls and cascades / 폭포과 계곡을 찾습니다.
The sounds comforting / 위안을주는 소리
The smells enchanting / 매혹적인 냄새
The sights burned into pixels / 경치를 픽셀로 불멸하게해야
The days of hurt and healing. / 상처 받고 치유하는 날들.
Roy Cruz, March 2018
These photos were taken in Tongyeong, South Korea (Mireuk-San 미륵산, Yonghwasa Temple 용화사) and Gurye, South Korea (Hwaeomsa Temple 화엄사). I have been enjoying hiking lately not only for photography and exercise, but also just to have some quiet time for myself. The spring rains have brought some nice cascades going through the mountain woods, making the walks even more beautiful.
My new camera (at the time of writing), the Fujifilm X-H1 with it’s in-body stabilization (IBIS) have helped me to easily photograph moving water without a tripod. The variable ND filter allows me to drag the shutter from 1/8 to 1/2 of a second, which is enough for silky water shots. Not having a tripod to set up helps me to travel very light (one camera, one lens, no bag) and move quickly.
