Elemental :: MA / NY

This shot was taken at Bash Bish Falls on the Massachusetts / New York border.  It’s a shot that has eluded me for years.  I’ve always had a difficult time coming up with a good composition here, and the strong spray has historically made many of the shots I wanted to try difficult.

The water flow is light right now, though, which opened up a few possibilities this visit that I hadn’t had before.  The sun beam peaking through the gap in the rocks at the top of the falls was a nice, atmospheric bonus. 🙂

      Thanks so much! I actually thought I’d get there too late to catch any good light, but the rock walls created those unique light patterns instead. It was awesome!

      Thanks! I spent several hours there exploring and this comp ended up being my favorite. 🙂 I’m glad it resonates with you!

    beautiful! makes me want a wide angle lens.

      Do it! It’s definitely my most used landscape lens at this point. I usually only swap out for situations that need a scene compressed. 🙂

      I just happened to be there when nature decided to shine. I’m glad you connect with it though! 🙂
