My friend, Dave Hook, called me up asked if I wanted to get out to photograph Billie Green Falls in Hamilton. I jumped at the chance as I had never visited that falls before. Little did I know just how easy it would be to get there. This waterfall is located right at the side of a main road.
The difficult part was finding a good angle in which to see the entire falls. The above photo shows only the upper portion of the waterfall, which is most of the falls, but you miss out on seeing the sharp turn it takes before going down a little further. There are large boulders blocking the best views but hey I take what I can get. For this shot I had to maneuver myself past some rocks, along a narrow shelf and then braced myself against the rock wall to get this view. The fallen tree to my right was in the way but I used it to frame the photo.
Trees are very eerie in the fog and its one of my favourite things to photograph when the fog rolls in. The tree above was in a park not too far from the waterfall.
From Billie Green Falls we headed over to Devil’s Punchbowl but the fog was way too thick here to even see the falls from its regular vantage point. The trees in the parking lot was much more interesting in the fog, don’t you think?
