A steep switchback path of 1 / 4 of 1 half a mile at 11,000 ft takes you to the 105 foot falls. Sadly, after the hike I discovered the falls to be no more than a trickle. I attempted however was dissatisfied that even with a number of impartial density filters I couldn’t register a lot water issuing over the falls. Guess I’ll should make a visit again there within the Spring for an additional probability when water.

Fall again

I didn’t need to come away from this lovely house skunked photographically. I headed for an additional a part of the stream and went to work. It was noon and many distinction within the scenes the place I loved the composition. HDR to the rescue. I discovered my composition and made a 5 bracket publicity with a small aperture. The gradual aperture had a twofold goal. Full depth of subject by the scene and to gradual the water to present a tender rendition of the water circulate.

In taking my Behind the Scenes picture of my tools I didn’t bracket a number of exposures. Oops!
