Porcupine Mountains Waterfall, Michigan

Photograph by Gowtham

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Environment

This is the result of a ten-second exposure on a breezy evening from a suspension bridge in Upper Michigan's Porcupine Mountains. Thankfully, no one was around the bridge to induce camera shake. At the end of it all, it was very, very satisfying and yes, ten seconds—often a minuscule amount of time in our daily standards—did feel like eternity.
