Little Niagara Falls, Study 2 by greglief Little Niagara Falls, Study 2 by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery. Faves and comments are always appreciated! As always I invite you to download this image to use as desktop wallpaper. Please respect my work by not printing, selling, or reposting it. If you share it via Twitter, Facebook, or tumblr, please include my photo credit. Thanks!

A difficult 1/3 mile bushwhack leads you to one of the most photogenic waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest. Little Niagara Falls might be small by comparison to the "real" Niagara Falls, but it is still quite large... 75 feet high and 80 feet wide. It just barely fit inside one frame with my wide-angle lens cranked as wide as it would go!

My camera and I got completely pounded by the spray at this vantage point, but I persevered. I attempted several dozen shots, carefully wiping the lens between shots in the hopes that at least one of them would not be a blurry mess!

NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.

(Nikon D90, Tokina 11-16 lens, circular polarizer, f/22, 1.6 seconds, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod)

Here is another horizontal study from a bit further away:



This waterfall looks considerably different in my semi-abstract vertical study:

Oh my! The Pacific Northwest? Which state?

Yes, Pacific Northwest. This is in Washington State, not far from Trout Lake and Mount Adams.

Thank you, LeeAnne! It is indeed one of the most photogenic waterfalls that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in person! I could have stayed there for hours... I intend to return.
