    This is especially pretty, and interesting because of the almost-rainbow effect in the woods. Was there enough mist to create a glory, or other atmospheric phenomenon? I was driving through some fog last weekend, and experienced only the second fog bow I’ve seen. Rainbows are nice, but I think I prefer the more diffuse colors; they certainly complement your image.

    • Thanks, Linda! I’ve never been fortunate enough to see or capture a fogbow. There was plenty of mist but what you see is what I got. I like the softness of this image and think that a fogbow would have been nice but also would have dominated the image.

        I don’t know. What I’ve seen was quite diffuse. It was unmistakable, but not nearly as vibrant or distinct as a rainbow. In any event, the colors here are much like fogbow colors.

    Nicely done. Beautiful setting, well captured, and with that extra little something (fog, but not enough to kill the colors), it’s a wall hanger.

  8. A great enchanted look, I read Warner Bro.s is going to make more “Lord of the Rings” movies, they may show up to film there.

    Really lovely – love the blue-green-orange atmosphere, and the repeated orange in the foreground water. Fascinating.

    What a beautiful waterfall! A long exposure helped bring out the flow of the water.

  13. Mmmm. What a lovely photograph. Had to look at this one for a long time. I’m especially fond of the haze.

    Excellent photograph of an idyllic scene. Nicely framed by the two trees near the top of the falls.

    I’m afraid I might become so relaxed there that I would fall asleep to the sound of the cascading water.

    • That would provide some nice dreams, I think. Thanks for noting the placement of the trees. I debated more or less of the large rock on the left but liked the small cascade below as it was so ended with this composition. Thank you, Sir!

    What a beautiful sight! The waterfall is lovely but the misty woodland background makes it even more so.

    The rainbow-hued mist transports me to another realm. What a tranquil scene, Steve!

    • This spot is another realm, Lynn. πŸ™‚ One reason I enjoy photograph moving water is the separation from the day to day reality the sound offers. Not much traffic here, but others I visit do drown out most of civilization’s sound. Thanks!

        I can imagine that. I often think about the sound, the scent sometimes, the feeling in the air, even the space around us, whether it’s wide-open or sheltered – all are things that affect us as we make photographs. Sometimes I get home and see that the visual record or impression didn’t come close to the whole experience. The photo above is not one of those times – it conveys all those extra sensations even though we can’t say exactly what they were.

      • Thanks again, Lynn! It is true that we cannot often collect all the sensations of an experience in a photograph but when we do it is special. I am glad that you feel this is one of those.
