POTD: Autumn Falls

Title and Location

Autumn Falls

Location: Looking Glass Falls, North Carolina
Camera: Mamiya 645D, Phase One P30+, Mamiya 28mm
Date: October 2010

Looking Glass Falls is located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway in the Pisgah National Forest of North Carolina.

When photographing waterfalls I try to include the surrounding topography which I feel gives waterfalls more character.  A static portrait style photograph gets old pretty quick.  After all, it is the surrounding scenery that makes each one so unique.

After working close to the waterfall and not feeling much inspiration we ventured downstream where the water flowing over the rocks drew my attention.

Using the 28mm I was able to exaggerate the foreground rocks which balanced nicely with the waterfall and autumn color.
