Sahalie Falls

Sahalie Falls

For my inexperience, between the deep shadows, bright hotspots, and mist, this was a very difficult shoot. I hadn't yet learned about exposure bracketing nor did I have a tripod. Long exposures required the combination of a gorilla pod, a conveniently located fence, and patience. But never waste an opportunity and this these shots gave me a great opportunity to mess around in Lightroom.

I will take another shot at the falls soon.
