I just checked and I have four previous posts from Gunn Brook Falls….here’s one. I visited again today looking for some different compositions. The temptation is always to stand in front of one of the falls. It’s a wonderful crashing sound and there is a refreshing mist from the turbulent action the falling water creates. It’s a great place to spend a hot summer day.
Today I stayed back a distance from the upper waterfall to accomplish the different perspective and to also hide some of the debris that collects at the bottom of the falls. Some day I will ask the property owners if I can clean it up which will probably come as a great shock to them as most people who go there litter the ledges with broken beer bottles and crushed cans. I’ve seen a lot of pictures from the falls but none that include the brook. As always, please click to see a larger version.I promised two ways and here is the second from the lower waterfall which is where the two versions come in….color and monochrome. Each gives a different feel to the image.
I must admit that I had not considered this for Black and White when shooting, but I often do a quick conversion just to see and I do like this even more than the color version.One of these days that hemlock on the right will fall across the falls and I am sure it will remain. So I shall continue to visit and look for more angles while the opportunities remain.
