Yikes! Steve Schwartzman mentioned to me that I haven’t posted since February 10th. It’s been slow times for photography hereabouts for me and I haven’t had much to say in that time either. I’ll try to do a little better with my contributions as Spring expands. Thanks Steve for your concern and the timely poke.
I’ve mentioned that I like to visit the same locations often and try to find a different way to see my favorite subjects. Gunn Falls is a one of those places, not only for the waterfalls, but the proximate ledges bear several Spring wildflowers which should start to present themselves in the next week or two. We’ve had some wonderfully warm weather, but they have not quite been sold on the time being right and a good thing as we will fall into the teens tonight.
Last weekend I visited once again and came away with this view of the falls. I was looking for something a bit different from the usual full frame of the water and thought a composition including the upper level would make for a nice change. I hope you like it.
It was a rainy day with a bit of fog for some subtle mood. As you can see, it’s not a clear line of sight and this is about the only angle, requiring a perch half way up the slope, that works to include all the falls.
The two trees on the right side are actually hanging over my position on the side of the hill and are holding each other upright. I guess a good strong windy storm in the not too distant future will cause them to fall across the water.
