Wow, great combinations of colors!

Here in CH trees are not at that point (yet), though looking forward for capturing them soon in their autumn outfits.

Hmmm weather is not cooperating here either. Rain, rain, light rain, heavy rain, overcast!

Nice shot, looking forward to seeing autumn developing for you.

It started to clear up late this afternoon, so I got this shot it's the best I could do (forgot tripod, got there too late) I know it's noisy... but you can imagine what i saw it was so beautiful... can anybody tell me what I could of done better
exposure time 1/60
iso 400 (maybe that's why I had so much noise)
f/5

These shots are the ones I call mystic, they have a very mystical spirit in them, good job.

I would have used an ND filter to prolong the exposure so as to achieve the effect of creamy water. But you need a tripod for that :wink:

I'm going back this afternoon with the tripod, and better footwear.

You may also want to bring a circular polarizer. I don't see much noise (the image is too small), but it might be that what you're considering noise is actually reflections in the mist. If you use a tripod, you can drop your ISO as low as you can go. Also, go to f/8 or f/11. The combination of these changes and the light lost to a circular polarizer will allow you to use a much slower shutter speed, making the water look silky.
