Moss Glen Falls

There are few things in the world of landscape photography as beautiful as a waterfall in autumn.  Especially beautiful are the waterfalls that are visible from the road and require almost no hiking to reach them.  Lazy photographers of the world unite!  🙂

Such is the case with Moss Glen Falls in Granville, VT.  You can see it from the road, and need only to walk a 100 yards or so along a wooden boardwalk to get a clear view.  Climbing over the fence is required to get compositions like this one, but it’s very easy to do here.  This is a very popular location for photographers and tourists, so I made sure to get there very early to both avoid other people, and to also avoid having sunlight washing out part of the falls.

    Wonderfully composed fall image Steven. That rock in the foreground really anchors that silky water.

    This is briliant Steven. Perfect exposure the water flow looks great.

    That’s a beauty of a composition. It just holds together – so well balanced. There’s one thing I’d love to know: were the leaves there on the foreground rock or did you place them there? The answer actually is irrelevant. Either way, you saw the crucial role that they play in this composition. Well done, Steven.

      Thanks so much for the kind words Andy. While I’ve certainly placed leaves in images in the past, for this shot they were already there just waiting to be photographed.
