Garwin Falls II

Garwin Falls II

I can’t stress enough how much I enjoy photography at places like Garwin Falls.  For several hours on Sunday morning I was the only one there, and had free reign to explore the area without worrying about anyone or anything else.  It’s just so peaceful to be at a beautiful location where the only sound is the water rushing over the rocks and the occasional click of the camera’s shutter.  I had the flexibility to really take my time, and made far fewer images than I typically would as I spent more time enjoying the moment.  Had the sun not come out from behind the clouds to create very contrasty light, I would’ve been content to hang there all day. With multiple levels of cascading water, surrounded by both evergreen forest and changing leaves, this is truly a magical place.

This is probably my favorite image from the morning.  A six second exposure was all it took to capture the swirling water in the pool at the bottom of the falls, while adding that smooth, milky appearance to the water.  I manually blended two images together for this shot – one of the falls and one of the trees in the center background that were blown out with the long exposure.
