Upper Cataract Falls – the new ice-skating practice rink ;)

View Large
Mental note for next time – old sneakers with no grip are not the most suitable footwear for traversing a mossy slippery set of falls such as these, how I got to this spot without going arse over tits is beyond me 🙂 I think booties with nails in the bottom would be more useful.

Nonetheless the beautiful deep colour in the rocks and the texture and veins made it worthwhile, not to mention the veil of wispy water flowing over the edge.

Techie data:
4 shot (landscape orientation) panorama.
D7000 with Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 @ 11mm Aperture: f/13 Shutter 8, 2 & 30 seconds. – Hoya screw in circular polariser and neutral density filter (3 stops)

I welcome any suggestions, comments and improvements to my photography, they are always warmly welcomed and always appreciate the time people take to have a look, plus and/or comment.

  1. Confused "4 shot (landscape orientation) panorama.
    D7000 with Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 @ 11mm Aperture: f/13 Shutter 8, 2 & 30 seconds"
    So are using the images for HDR pp or stitching into a panorama?

    I saw bits of a tv program last night called 'i shouldn't be alive' about a young canadian photographer who had a bad fall while trying to get "that photo". Maybe time to get a proper pair of hiking boots mate. Our foot ware in the bush is no different to the tyres on our cars 😉
    That photographer was there for 4 days before being found

  2. +Ian Browne the bracketed shots just give me that little extra bit of room to move when processing – i am pretty confident I can get fairly close to this with a single exposure, however i am trying to push for a bit more quality 🙂
    as for memory loss..yeah been there done that and still doing it 🙂
