After the game last night my girlfriend and I decided to go for a drive up to Elbow falls since I hadn't been there in a couple months. I only had my camera/wcon0.7 with me and no tripod so it was going to be a challenge taken some shots in the low light conditions since it was about 9:30pm with the sun setting. Last year I used to hike across the river downstream of the falls but I don't think I will be doing this anytime soon as the river is about 1' deeper than it was when I would hike through it. Here's a few pictures I have taken of this wonderful area over the last year through some of the season. It amazes me the difference the season makes on the water flowing over the falls and the noise. During the winter you can't hear the falls from the parking lot. Last night we could hear them with the windows rolls up before we entered the lot!:shock:Where I used to take my pictures from last year is now under 6-12" of water.... and there isn't a hope I could make it across the river downstream of the falls to take pictures from below...at least now right now.

This last shot was taken last night and I think turned out very well considering it was handheld 0.625sec shot...:-)

I really like the way you changed the shutter speed to match the feeling of the weather. The peaceful waterfalls captured on August 27th (3 days before my birthday, mind you) go so wel with the warm appearing weather, as opposed to the winter where you captured the water and gave it a much more cold and bitter feeling. Its a very nice set of photos! I likey I likey!

Great photographs. The lens flare makes the picture feel colder. The blue sky, the bright white snow and the blue sky may have something to do with it to.

Great series, tkmckay

You are a master of falling water and slow shutter speed!

I really love how you showed the change in seasons in each picture. My favorite is the February 2 photo. I think the lens flare makes the whole picture.
