Yosemite Falls

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 26 July 2019 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

In June I was lucky enough to be able to visit Yosemite. The waterfalls were in full flow and the power of the water took my breath away!

This photo was taken with my DSLR and I was surprised that I got anything useable as the spray from the falls was horizontal and filled the air....it was like standing in a heavy rainstorm with the water moving straight at the camera. I covered the camera lens with my hand until the last second and quickly pressed the shutter button, with no time to compose the photo properly. I was amazed that I managed to get a photo before the lens was covered in water.

You always produce beautiful BW images and this one is no exception. Good range of tones and good details in the highs and lows. It also seems to me that you prefer to use f 8 or 9 in a lot of your photo's instead of the slower f stops. Again, beautiful photo.

Beautifully handled. The mist adds to its intrigue.
