Upper Kentucky Falls by greglief Upper Kentucky Falls by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery. Faves and comments are always appreciated! 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!

An easy one-mile hike leads to 100 foot Upper Kentucky Falls, located in the Siuslaw National Forest near Mapleton, Oregon. There are two more waterfalls along this trail, so it is well worth doing the entire hike. I try to visit at least once a year.

NOTES

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

2. Apparently some people think that the green in this photograph is artificial (i.e., added in post-processing). I refer to this as my "Oregon filter"... it really is that green. I am too lazy to do much, if any, post-processing, other than sharpening to recapture detail lost in the file reduction process.

(Nikon D90, Nikon 18-200 lens, circular polarizer, f/13, 1/2 seconds, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod)
