I’ve done posts on today’s subject before, as the photographer in me loves falling water. Below you will find a visual study of the subject of waterfalls. They were made in Wisconsin, Michigan, Colorado, Idaho, Washington State, Tennessee and North Carolina. Somewhere hiding deep in my old film files are many more, including images from Kentucky, Wyoming, Arizona, New Mexico, Minnesota and other locales.
Almost every state in the U.S. and most countries around the world have places where water heads down hill, or over a cliff. God made these places for photographers.
There are not a lot of unusual techniques used with the images below. Of course slow, water blurring shutter speeds, are often used because so many waterfalls reside in dark woodlands. That results in corresponding long exposures. Artistic interpretation is another reason. The most important part are the compositions, both typical, and unusual. Much difficulty was employed for some of these and they produced wet feet, and sometimes a wet body.
Please excuse the large number of pictures here, especially because they have all been shown before. Believe it or not, I have cut down the total number of pictures I have included. This post was created for posterity’s sake.
