Cascades / by Joel Bramley

Yesterday whilst wondering around with my camera I came across the Cascades in Rosalind Park and there was water flowing. I think it's been a long time since this last happened!

"Water features were very popular in the 19th century. They provided a cool green contrast to what would have been a very dusty streetscape outside the park. The cascades constructed in 1880 were designed by architect William Vahland, best known as the architect of many of the significant buildings in Bendigo. The original cascades featured statues, fountains and a grotto that displayed many varieties of ferns. Unfortunately, its complicated design was seriously flawed and fell into disrepair sometime in the early 20th century. It was partly reconstructed in 1997." - http://www.bendigo.vic.gov.au








I wanted to try and blur the water so I switched to manual mode and pushed the f stop/aperture to 22 (max for my camera/lens) settings are under each shot.
