I recently went up to the Gooseberry Falls State Park in Northern MN. I had been up there before and this time the falls weren't as full as they were the previous time. This time we were able to walk very closely to the falls and get some really neat shots.

This is one of the full shot of the falls.

I have other shots on my website... any comments / thoughts are always welcome.



Thanks all!

Looks good to me! Was this hand-held or did you use a tripod? I don't have much experience with longer shutter speeds and water falls (for that matter, not much experience with water falls at any shutter speed) - I wonder what it would look like if you had used even a longer shutter speed than you did - would it look like a white blob instead of water? Or would it look even more like satin ribbons? It might not have been possible if you were hand-holding. In any case, was just wondering - I like this picture the way it is.

Thanks for the comments so far. This shoot was one that I had a lot of fun with. With the falls not as full, being able to get close to the falls, I was able to work some different angles. the tough part was it was very overcast and raining that day.

Yes, this was hand-held. I tried to get a tripod to work up close, but with the rocky terrain, it was difficult to get the shots I wanted.... so I decided to hand held. I do have a few full shots of the falls that I did put on a pod and kept the shutter open longer. Those I do believe are on my website.

I am posting a photo I kept the shutter open a little longer. It gives me more of a spider web feel.

Feel free to edit/comment/etc at will.
