I was so excited about the colors and light I had captured in this shot. The split neutral density filters, neutral density filter, and polarizer really helped intensify the sunset/light against the rock while allowing me to capture a longer exposure of the waterfall.
To get there, we had to hike to the bottom of the gorge and find some small unmarked pathways to the outskirt of the falls area. After, I climbed across several of the white rocks you see and set my tripod up in the middle of the stream and propped up against some nearby rocks. It’s always fun getting wet and right in the middle of a landscape to capture a photo :)
Little editing done (sharpening, haze removal, etc).
