About the Image(s)

Canon 5D Mk III, 70-200 f2.8 L lens, ISO 160, 95mm, f16, 0.5 sec

I have gone to Glacier Park for six years in a row, staying with some friends at the Rising Wolf Ranch near East Glacier. We try to vary the trails and shots each year, but usually make a stop at the Trail of the Cedars which has Avalanche Falls. Each year the little pine tree that hopefully is the subject of this image survives and remains the same size.

This is quite a dramatic falls image. I think your composition is excellent. I really like the .5 second exposure because it first shows fine detail in the slower parts of the fall but it also give some scale to the amount of rushing water in the more milky areas. This way the viewer can feel get power of the falls. I am fascinated by the green wall of moss in the lower left. The texture looks so smooth compared to the other moss in the photo.

You did a great job with this image.   Posted: 11/05/2020 11:59:08

An impressive picture of a waterfall. The composition is spot on with the tree placed in the crossing point of rule of thirds. The framing is almost symmetrical. The stream has a lot of repeating elements and makes the image pleasant to look at. A piece of excellent work, Michael.   Posted: 11/10/2020 15:07:13
