    Welcome to another Waterfall Wednesday :)

    Last spring there were quite a few storms that dictated me using US101 to go around the Mt. Shasta area instead of driving up I-5 so I spent a couple nights on the coast before driving back to Vancouver. One of my stops was in the Florence area so I paid a visit to my favorite local waterfall complex along Sweet Creek. This was right at the tail end of what I would call peak moss season with the deep shades of green decorating the scene.


    Pile on with your own falling water images.

    Beautiful, Alan. I see you don't ever get "beautiful waterfall fatigue"!

    Nope - I am still overcompensating for spending the first 50 years of my life in desert environments :D

    I have almost ran out of waterfalls but have 2 left that you haven't seen. The first is a slightly different take on a previously posted fall. Someone pointed out that the waterfall faced left out of the scene. This version faces to the right, a strange idea that waterfalls point in a direction. The next is a waterfall that is hidden behind foliage. It looks as though it could be wonderful but I am not skilled or brave enough to climb down to a good position. I am going to Glencoe next month so may be able to photograph waterfalls set against winter mountains, but only if the underfoot conditions allow. Ken _DSC6193-1.jpg

    The lighting and contrasts in the first image are quite nice and I love the composition and colors in the second image Ken.

    Both are great! The B&W in the first is really cool, I enjoy your touch with process those. I also like the balance in the second, the tree trunks on the left and the waterfall on the right.

    If you are running out of waterfall photos, I will be sad as your take on them is always special. Maybe you need to plan a local waterfall trip before your trip next month? :)

    The weather since the turn of the year has been grim. Yesterday for instance we had winds gusting to 80mph and 4" of rain in the afternoon. I am sure that the people in Australia would love weather like this. Ken

    I really like that morning light on the far side of the cirque in this scene. That's one seriously long set of falls.
