Fall

November 4th, 2009

D20 3653 Fall Waterfall, that is. After Angie and I did our Fall Colors shot we went to a nearby waterfall where I’ve shot a number of times. In the past something has always prevented me from getting the shot I was after. Sometimes the light was wrong. The waterfall faces south, so if there is any direct sunlight it is on the waterfall all day and the trees produce mottled sun and shadow that can be very unattractive, not to mention being beyond the ability of the camera to hold detail at both ends. The waterfall is seasonal, coming pretty close to drying up when there hasn’t been rain for a while. So other photos have not worked well because there just wasn’t enough water.

But this time everything fell into place. The cloud cover was perfect for just the right level of contrast. It’s very unusual for there to be this much water here at the end of October, but this fall has been far from usual as far as weather goes, so the water flow was about the best I’ve seen in this spot.

And, fortunately, I had the beautiful and talented Angie with me to add just the right extra element to the scene that it needs for my eye to feel it’s complete.

So, there you have it. Thanks Angie.

I finished the shooting for the Fall Dance Concert at Ohio University last night. So, today’s task is editing. I should soon have some of those photos to share here.
