Tight cropping emphasizes how much is going on here.

I made several compositions of this falls on this particular day and the framing here is definitely more effective than wider views.
Wow Steve! A lot going on here! Beautiful image! Would look really cool as a metallic print!
Thanks, Reed. I am going to print it.I don’t have any metallic paper in stock but maybe I’ll try that out.
An image to immerse yourself in – and a wonderful distraction from present life… 🙂

Yes it is a great distraction, Ann. One of the reasons I enjoy being near woodland brooks is the sense of isolation from the rest of the world for those moments. A good crashing waterfall can drown out the sound of a jet flying overhead.
I think of levels of “cleansing” waters in this image. For some, it might be good to hit the rushing waters, but for me, I’d choose the more gentle slope of water on the right side of the image. I also like Ann’s “immerse” word. 🙂
This has been a favorite waterfall of mine for the better part of 50 years, Lori! 😯 !!! While in college friends and I would visit here and on particularly hot days sit behind the falling water that wasn’t flowing with quite this volume…more the gentle feel that you’d prefer. I guess it was cleansing us but I doubt we were thinking of that concept back then.
Really?! Seriously?! Are you kidding?! A-bleeping-mazing. Brilliant. Fantastic. I mean, gosh.
Thank you for that effusive and enthusiastic response, Mike. I am addicted to photographing water in motion and that sort of comment makes my day.
The picture made mine.
Heavenly! One of the valley’s best falls. 🙂
You recognize it! 🙂 I have been advised that the owners don’t really want it advertised because of some of the less responsible folks that are attracted there for fires at night and beer parties so I no longer name it in posts. I’ve had to clean up debris from them at various times which I am glad to do in appreciation. The shot of me on my about page is in front of the lower falls.
You sho’ do know how to go with the flow!
I guess I do. Thanks, Gary.
You are a master of these waterfall shots, Steve! The is purely wonderful!
Thanks, Pete. It’s a labor of love as are your insect photographs.
Of all the waterfall photos you’ve posted, I think this is the most aesthetically pleasing. There’s an almost electric glow around the water that suggests a power different than brute force.
I am glad that you enjoy this one, Linda. It’s a special place for many and I love photographing it. I mentioned to Eliza above that its lower level, not part of this picture, is my About photo on that page. I like to think of falls such as these, as well as many of the cascades I visit, as a gentle power.
Beautiful waterfall and capture … a nice choice of shutter speed and blur.
Thanks, Denise. There’s always a little experimentation involved with these.
This seem like a very different look than many of your waterfall images. It’s more abstract, the tones are close together, the color went bye bye and the fine lines have the feel of an etching. I do like it! 🙂
Different is good. 🙂 There wasn’t much color and I often switch to monochrome in that case, especially with something that is more about form. Thanks, Lynn.
I like the cascade pics, but I like waterfalls even more. This one’s loaded with texture.
Thanks, Dave. I am impartial. Love ’em both.
