The blue Zambezi river rapids may look a bit abstract to you. I have photographed this photo with a slow shutter speed to convey this sense of motion of the water. A slow flow of a river or water itself gives you a calming mind. Of course, smooth moving water of the blue Zambezi river rapids.
Static water seems rough and maybe as well as motionless. On the other hand, when you expose such a photo for too long, the rapid may not show like that, rather flat.
Zambezi River Rapids – Painting with light
While sitting at the edge of the Zambezi River, Zambian locals enjoyed the view of Victoria waterfalls. Accompanied by the local’s African music playing over their speakers, I enjoyed experimenting with slow shutter speeds even more. I looked at my camera’s display and compared photos until I finally found the correct shutter speed. Not to forget the Golden Light of the vibrant African sunset.
The African beat on the side was such a bliss to listen to. Certainly, some locals were curious to see what I was doing. Sitting beside me, asking lots of questions, which I happily answered.
