Late afternoon sun shining on the falls of Lake Katherine.

Must view larger to feel the water.

I enjoy photography of all kinds. If it was how I supported my family financially, it would be a dream come true.

    This is stunning, it’s kind of fairytale gorgeous! The waterfall couldn’t have been more artistically designed if it was manmade. Lovely shot Adam.

  • Thanks. It’s a great local spot full of great vantage points.

    This scene is a beauty I like how just a little light shines through and you can use your imagination for its scale nice work :)

  • Thanks Paul. The use of my 300 mm made for a different perspective and probably does fool people as to the scale of this waterfall which is not that big. Glad you liked it.

    This is gorgeous Adam, the sun is beautiful and the photo is nice and crisp! Great shot!

  • Thanks so much Paul. Considering this was from a cheapie Canon 75-300 mm lens, that is a big compliment. I actually like that lens though.
