Along the River

My friend Dave and I headed over to Smokey Hollow Falls this morning. Having been here numerous times before I wanted to work on more detail shots of the river rather than focusing on the waterfall itself. That said of course I had to get at least one shot of the waterfall.

With a great flow and all the rocks along the river the twists and turns of the water made it easy to find unique shots. On the photo below I used selective colour to allow the leaf to stand out from the rocks and water.

With many leaves to be found in the river I decided to focus on three yellow ones that had gotten stuck on some rocks in the middle of the flow.

We didn’t get too much time here as I had to head home early but we did a little more exploring in the hopes of finding a smaller waterfall that we were told existed further downstream. We found the spot but there was no water flowing so we will have to come back in spring once the melt occurred. We hiked back tot the car along the train tracks to make our trek back a little easier.
