This is Bridal Vail Falls in Kagawong, Manitoulin Island, Ontario, Canada.
The kagawong river begins here and ends in Mudge Bay, about 2km away. It has a gradual decent to the bay.
The Chinook Salmon make their way up to the falls to spawn and die.
This shot is a continuation from last posting.

As with the last shot, yep, this is hand held.
Just testing out the "IS" capabilities, I think this proves that it works.
Hope you like this one.

Hi Mike.
Nice shot with a nice place, your composition is very good and the DOF, and POV are so good too. The colour are brilliant and the low shutter made the difference. well done

Hello Mike,
This is a beautiful shot.
The colours fits together and make your picture of unique beauty! Great photo and thanks for sharing!

Hi Mike:
This falls looks very much like the upper Ball's Falls, in Jordan, Ontario. I think you have done a good job of composing this shot, It looks just slightly out of focus, but hey, you took it freehand, and as such I think you did a great job.

When my family and I move back to Ontario, we're going to have to check out Manitoulin Island. It looks beautiful!

This is really beautiful, Mike!

I love the POV that you chose, the colors are magnificent and details are great.


This is beautiful. I hope to take a similar picture with the same colors...

So, first colours of autumn Mike? Very nice, calm picture. Waterfall looks great - especially this stripped rocks.

Wonderful shot Mike! I really like pictures with falling water and a slow shuttertime. You've done brilliantly and the scene looks marvelous. The POV and the composition rock. Well done & TFS!

Excellent shot, Mike
Very nice composition, great colour and POV, beautiful view.

Hello Mike

I can see this sitting on my table top as a jigsaw puzzle! Stunning colours. It is the prettiest season of all. Nice balmy days, calm weather and those colours! Nice shutter speed for the waterfall. Top shot Mike. Thanks.

It's a great fall-picture, Mike.
You have steady hands, even wiht IS the 1/8 is quite long speed. The colours are very nice, well composed and the POV is perfect.
Great work, my friend.

Hi Mike,
wonderful landscape, and very colourful. I like the details... I can only say exellent shot.

You did an excellent work with this one, and I guess it was not easy to control that sky with low shutter speed.
It really looks what you intended with the framing & color saturation, a picture ready to hang on a wall. Thanks and regards.

Mike, this autumn color range postings is very nice. I like them all so far. Nice scene and you captured the mood very well. The BG top-center is a bit OE washing some of the nice deep colors out in that area but it's a minor nit. Very well done.
