I love attempting to shoot waterfalls, mine don't usually come out nearly as nice as these though. Great series!

Thanks, everyone for the compliments! Mole - I'm not surprised that you like those two, having seen so many of your lovely detail shots. I think they are one of many reasons why I felt perfectly comfortable using the DA*200 only while we were hiking - I thought about your shots and had a great time picking out details. It was a very satisfying day.

Nick - I don't get a chance to photograph waterfalls very often, and would have had a much harder time if it had been sunny. I don't have a 77mm ND filter - only a circular polarizer, which I did use to cut down on the light. It helps to have a sturdy tripod along.

As always, Harriet, these are just wonderful photos. That really is a magical part of the world. And Jelpee has better eyes than I do (or maybe just a better monitor), as I cannot see the lens cap. I really like that photo of you.

Terrific series, you captured the running water so well.

Wonderful series Harriet!

The picture of you on the bridge is one that is reminiscent of a picture I have of my wife standing on the same bridge. You had nice full falls to shoot and did a lovely job of capturing them.

We were there during a drought year in the PNW, so the falls were not as full. It is a treat for me to see them like they should be seen. Thanks for taking me back.

Lou

Lou - glad to have brought back some pleasant memories, though it's too bad the falls were not as full.

Thanks, Rodney. I love shooting waterfalls, probably because I so rarely get the chance.

mtnman - it's not so much that you can see the lens cap, as you can see the logo going across the front of the lens. It looks really strange when you see the picture full sized. Not sure you could read it, but the silver/light line across the black is very noticeable.

a very nice series
and i does look like you had good light
the practice falls turned out excellent for a practice
and i like the detail shots
and the main falls looks like a place i could stay for ages and just soak it in
