Waterfall Reserve

hidden deep in the gulley away from the blue sky, a trickle quietly creeps over the rocks

Its pretty cool when you can get to 30 second shutter speeds without filters and its 10am in the morning. Mount Wilson is well known for a few serious canyoning routes, this is not one of them 😉 however you can certainly see how the area is well suited to it. The walk down is pretty mild and access to the various little falls is easy and there is plenty to see and photograph, but what I did like was the sweet greenness of the rocks contrasting with the deep black of the rocks – fav combo right there so i forgive the falls for being only a trickle.

single frame, no gimmicks 😉 just alot of green rough balls..

Exif love:
D750 (yeah i know the embedded exif says D610 🙂 ) coupled with 16-35mm f4 @ 16mm Aperture: f/16 and Shutter Speed: 30s

  1. Thanks +Chris Sutton Thats great, and this is what I love about photography, what is one persons awesome image not necessarily another persons. I do actually like this one too, even tho there is not much water – i think it gives the other elements a bit more airplay rather being second fiddle to the water.

  2. Yep – I like this one better than all the crappy compos I came up with down here mate. I had the same problem with that stupid reflection at the bottom too – just couldn't get a polarisation setting to dampen it the right amount.

  3. Thanks +Tom Testone , i like even after a few days ( i tend to dislike alot of images after a few days 😉 ) and i think because it does not have the typical cliche waterflow and the other elements like the rocks shine 🙂
