Beside Smalley Falls
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|One of the last stops on my tour of the waterfalls of Marinette County (see travelogue in progress on TE for more), Smalley Falls is another middle-of-the-woods landscape delight for those determined enough to get close. |
Smalley Falls, on the North Branch of the Pemembonwon River, drops around 10 feet or so over a stretch of around 100 feet. It's in a ravine of 40-foot walls of granite. Large boulders clog the gorge and the water bends over and around them. There are no fences or railings or boulevards in the cedar and oak forest here, so if you follow in my footsteps some day, proceed with caution!

Very interesting composition and excellent image, all elements are finely captured. tfs.
Thanks for your kind words on my recent picture of Bracket fungus.
This is a lovley image of flowing water seen through the trees in the foreground. The slow shutter speed has given the water that typical cascading appearance.
But why is there a reddish tinge to it? Maybe you raised the levels of color warmth for saturation purpose.
Nonetheless, it is a wonderful image.
