Default Franklin Falls

went up to Franklin Falls on Sunday afternoon... it was kinda hazy/bright overcast, so the light was good for waterfalls - not too harsh, no shadows to speak of, and diffused. taken with 5D and 24-135, various settings...

i don't normally like people in my shots, but in this one, the kid by the falls adds scale...



here's the shot i'm keeping...



and one in horizontal format, showing the basin...

i actually quite like the horizontal shot. gives the waterfall some context and the the angles from the left hand ledges lead eveything down to the basin and falls. nice contrast of the smooth white water and the greens of the ferns on the earthtone rocks.

thanks. some folks prefer the vertical, because it emphasizes the falls more, but i like 'em both. the wider format gives a sense of space and, like you said, sorta puts the whole thing in context...

I'd have to say that the wider profile is to my liking, also capturing this shot without the harsh sunlight brings out the beauty of the scene.

I wonder how a scene like this would do with light painting at night.

A great thought Bynx. Is this place far from home Rocky? These scenes do very well under moon light as well.

not really... about an hour away, up in the mountains just west of Snoqualmie Pass... the trail could be pretty treacherous at night, but on a clear evening, a long exposure... yeah, i bet it'd be really nice. i might have to give that a try before summer's over...
