About the Image(s)

The image of Sherman Falls was taken a little over a week ago, just after a recent snow fall. It was taken with a Nikon D6, 24-70 lens at 36 mm, f18, 100 ISO and 3D filter, 13 seconds. I had taken a number of images at different exposures, however, settled on this one. The image was opened in Lightroom, after basis adjustments were made, the image was converted to B/W.

Paul - after your comments re. snow last month you come up with a snow scene! Nicely composed and captured with the shutter seed spot on for the waterfall. The reduced scale of the trees above the top of the falls serve to add depth to the image.   Posted: 01/06/2021 05:01:19

As I write this it is snowing outside!
Your image really captures the cold scene.
To me the logs in the stream tell of much greater amounts of water passing through.   Posted: 01/08/2021 05:19:37

Hi Paul: lovely winter scene...I like the waterfall and think your 13 second exposure is perfect. To my eye, the stream serves as a nice leading line to the waterfall. I also like the tree trunk which, to my eye, is a stop on the left hand side of the image. BUR rrrr how cold was it?   Posted: 01/09/2021 05:06:36

Hi Ella, I believe it was around -5 C. It was cold!   Posted: 01/09/2021 06:53:29

Paul your image really feels cold. I congratulate you for the stamina to make several long exposure images at -5C. Like the others the 13 sec. appears to have been a good choice. Good detail in the snow as well as the dark areas. Stay warm.   Posted: 01/09/2021 11:37:21

Hi Paul
Wonderful winter scene you have caught the movement in the waterfall perfectly I would just crop out the tree trunk on the very left side of the image.   Posted: 01/16/2021 14:31:20
