Elementary by Tula Top

Watson Falls, Watson Creek, Umpqua National Forest, Douglas, Oregon, USA

  • Canon 5DII · 24-70mm f/2.8L · CPL · 3-stop ND
  • xxmm · f/11 · 10s · ISO 50
  • Single exposure tone mapped in Photomatix Pro
    (Best seen large)

This may actually be my favorite of the shots I got on this visit to Watson. This downstream trio of mini-cascades and their plunge pool were just as scenic as the towering falls itself.

    Very nice Tula; as usual… never disappointing. Love the “flow” and the clarity to this image.

  • I really appreciate that, Hany. This one worked out better than I’d hoped, and the HDR approach really helped the exposure.

    You have really captured this waterfall beautifully. A wonderful spot, so many different points of view to be had! Dee

  • Indeed, Dee…wished we’d had more time to roam around off-trail and explore. Thanks for the lovely comment!

    Beautiful! Watch out for that Mieke, she’s photographing waterfalls now…!! :D

  • I know! That’s why I’ve secretly revoked my offer to be her tour guide here, she’ll show me up every time. :) Actually, Mieke’s actually been at it longer (and I’d argue better) than I have (see?), but she’s so darned gracious and humble that she gives me titles I don’t deserve, lol. Thanks for the comment and warning! ;)
