this is the same waterfall but taken from above. it was a pretty far drop, by my 80mmm (equiv) lens makes it look tiny. i’m not very happy with the composition, editing, or the colours of this photo. but i think the effect the gathering water at the bottom of the waterfall is too neat not to post. 30 second exposure with a tripod at f16, 2 neutral density filters (hoya nd8 and nd4), iso 100.

me and mike went out shooting again the other day. trying to find some new parks to shoot at, found this little place on ridge road in grimsby. had to do some intensive (and fun) climbing to get to the best waterfalls. 30 second exposure at f8, iso 100, using a tripod and a couple ND filters to make the scene dark enough for silky smooth exposures.
van broke down in arkansas during a severe thunderstorm. a tornado passed through that area the day before so we drove the van that was overheating to the max a couple miles down the road until we weren’t under the low clouds that were dark and slightly swirling. this is the van that we took to 4 mechanics…too many breakdowns.
and in the worst of situations comes some great tourist photos. recently i went on a tour with my band throughout the US. the tour was cut in half due to van problems (we saw 4 mechanics and many more breakdowns). when we first broke down in baltimore, maryland we missed our first show but instead gained an opportunity to drive to washington DC and walk around…we even saw barack obama leave the whitehouse (we think).
