[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This small, gently sloped 15' high waterfall is in Bedford Reservations Cleveland Metropark, in Cleveland Ohio adjacent to Cuyahoga Valley National Park. From the looks of it there is never a lot of water in this waterfall. Nonetheless it is impressive for a city park to have a waterfall. The waterfall can be accessed from the Gorge Parkway. There is a sign, trail and observation platform. The walk to the falls is short.

Bridal Veil Falls, carved by Tinkerís Creek, was almost spoiled in the mid-1960s. Thanks to concerned citizens, today you can peer into the nearly 200-foot deep gorge and enjoy its cascades and waterfalls along the trail. Scenery: Waterfall, 190-foot gorge, lush forest; great fall color, wide variety of wildflowers in the spring

Wow!! Kris,
This is really neat!!! I love the sharpness you achieved and the softness to the water is wonderful!
What was your shutter speed? When I viewed your photo info it says 0 for the shutter speed. Nice work!!

Hi Kris,
A very beautiful falls. I love how the different layers of rock are so clearly visible and create these almost 90 degrees angels. Especially the one in the front is awesome. The overall grey photo is receiving a wonderful splash of color by the fallen leaves and give the photo a great impact. Your low POV and the angle creating diagonal lines is wonderful. The slow shutter gave the water a nice sense of motion.

I like this image. I especially like the strong, sharp foreground elements that lead to the rest of the falls and the autumn leaf covered bank. The slow shutter speed effect is nice yet it is not so slow as to obscure all details in the water flow. Nice work.
