Waterfalls & Light
West Virginia Waterfalls – Part I
I was pleasantly surprised with my results from a visit to Elakala Falls in Blackwater State Park. We went on a sunny morning and found several photographer’s already there, including some people from my camera club. I like to provide a sense of place when available and think including the bridge helps to set the falls apart from others. It was a little steep and slippery getting to the bottom but I’m glad I made the effort. I confess that I was a little skeptical going in since the sun was quite bright which usually produces too much glare and contrast on waterfalls. Luckily the light was such that most of the falls were in the shade or filtered by the trees. For the most part, waterfalls photograph better in diffused light. Compare the Blackwater Falls in this post with one shot 2 days earlier with brighter light, shown in the previous post titled, ‘Familiar Places’.
