    Default Falling Waters

    One most of the hike I'm usually in forward motion mode and don't take time to get shots where I have to stop, setup the tripod, do many tests to get the settings right, etc. During Flags on the 48, since I knew I had all day, I finally got some of the obligatory waterfall shots. Camera starting acting up that day and couldn't keep if from shooting 1-2 stops under, so photoshop was required to bring these back.

    Anyone know if each fall has its own name?

    These are AWESOME. Definitely the best shots of the falls on Falling Waters that I've ever seen. It's generally pretty dim in there - particularly if you're going up that way in the morning - so long exposure tripod shots are called for. The names of the falls are: Walker Cascade, 20 ft. Stairs Falls, 60 ft. Swiftwater Falls and 80 ft. Cloudland Falls. (Description shamelessly stolen from NH Waterfalls on NewHampshire.com)

    Very nice! The falls in the first three shots is very familiar but I don't know the name. The falls in the last shot is definately Cloudland Falls.

    Oh my! I am in complete awe, not only of the waterfalls themselves, but perhaps even more so of your photographic talent to capture such striking images.

    Thank you for posting!!

    Really great series of shots...and a wonderful trail! Especially like the third shot...a very nice perspective on Stairs Falls...

    This is a great place to visit in a few weeks, after most of the foliage has passed peak, but the beech understory remains ablaze...

    Wow... thanks so much for the glowing compliments! I guess they might be a little better than I gave myself credit for.

    The third one is my favorite too. The pool at the bottom sort of adds 'something.' Almost like its showing the full process that water comes over the top, flows of the falls and then gathers back together gain at the bottom.
