    California Coastal National Monument at Crescent City, California — Bob Wick, Instagram Guest Photographer 

    About the photo: Using a very slow shutter speed (several seconds or more) softens moving water and helps convey a sense of movement.  In addition to using this technique on rivers and waterfalls, it works great to capture ocean and large lake waves as shown here on California’s far north Coast. This image was taken in Crescent City, the northernmost town along the 1,100 mile California Coastal National Monument. The National Monument and the tall trees in nearby Redwood National Park make this a photographers paradise.

    Camera Settings: Lens focal length: 70mm, aperture: f22, shutter speed: 6 seconds, ISO 50
