Thread: Winter Waterfall

    Winter Waterfall

    Some images from a roll I took back in January at a nearby waterfall. The images serve to illustrate both the rewards and dangers of shooting around, and up close to, flowing water.

    The first image is from the bit of the roll where the camera was still pretty dry:


    As you can see, the image is sharp and clear. But as I kept working my way around the fall, I grew a bit braver and got right up close to the flow, which was giving off a lot in the way of spray and droplets. On this next image, the pinhole had some moisture starting to accumulate, but the result is an (I think) pleasant soft-focus effect:


    That turned out to be the last decent shot on the roll, since the pinhole was pretty much waterlogged for the remaining frames. Here's one example:


    So the trick is getting just a bit of moisture, but without getting the camera soaked. The problem is that it's hard to tell when that critical point has been reached.

    David, you're right that second one is a gem.

    Hi David, I agree with Ned -- the second one is perfect.
    The world is not black and white. It often looks good in grayscale, though.
