These waterfall pictures are so good. Really captures the movement of the water and the power. I can't believe how big Laurel Falls is!!

Also- I really really like your vulture pictures alot :-) (question: is that a possum?)

Very nice photos as always Mole. You have a genuinely magic touch when it comes to producing that dreamlike, silky quality in waterfall photos. I'm hoping for some signs of spring before too long, but they're calling for -10 degree F temps for the next several nights, so we still have a fair bit of winter left.

Harriet - Glad you enjoyed these, and will look forward to seeing your waterfall photos. To answer your question, I try to pick dark gloomy days for waterfall photos if possible. Usually use a polarizer too - helps cut some glare off of wet rocks, and allows even slower shutter speed. Have also tried using two linear polarizers for a cheap variable ND filter, but it has a bluish tint, so photos need to be color corrected.

Kevin - So glad you liked the little blooms! Am looking forward to plenty more spring blooms soon...

BlueSky - Thanks for your kind words. As you well know, we have gotten PLENTY of rain lately - not good for those affected by flooding, but great for seeing powerful waterfalls. Hope to go visit more soon. PS - Vulture was enjoying a young racoon.

MtnMan - Thanks so much - glad you like our southern waterfalls! Hope you are surviving the cold!!

Very lovely images of spring. Good to see that it is returning, and will eventually make its way up here. We're still buried under deep snow, and night time temps dip below zero.
