I like that first one too. The mix of milky falls with the foreground swirls is great.
Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
- the fun's in finding them

Thanks Phill. Even with the heavy clouds I had to use my ND4 and polarizer to cut the light to get the exposure time long enough to show the swirling patterns. Guess I need to buy one of those really strong ND8 or 16's I am seeing advertised. They get pricey in a 72mm size.

One reason for the weekend waterfall trek was to play with my new ND16 filter. The ND4 and polarizer was not always enough on bright days even in the woods. Too bad the three falls I visited were tightly enclosed by trees and shrubs. Only one was reasonably photographic. That was Panther Falls shown here which has a total drop of about 100 feet.

This waterfall looks pretty cool. I bet it'd shine with a bit more water. I've never found a need for ND filters when shooting waterfalls in the woods. On overcast days when the light isn't so harsh the trees block enough of the light for me.
I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

That's great shot.

Down here in Georgia it can still be pretty bright even when overcast. Water volume was probably about as high as it gets on these unless it is during an actually downpour. The mountain streams are usually on some very small watersheds. This particular falls is probably within 300 vertical feet of the ridge line peak it feeds from. And we do not have Summer snow melt so everything is dependent on rainfall over the past 2-4 weeks for flow.

I usually stick to the Nikon forum, but it looks like I need to start looking through the rest of the site. Staggering waterfall pics, kgosden, absolutely incredible.
Critique most definitely desired...

A quickie from today's hike near Sitka before I go off the grid for a week or so.

I sorta like it. Off the grid is the best place to be.

Nice shot Ken. Fairly steady for 1/30 s (handheld?). Tough exposure (done well).
