Upper Burnside Falls

July 17, 2022

I hadn't visited Upper Burnside Falls for several years, say ten or so. My body paid the price hiking up the steep staircase. Going down was not so bad:) The river was higher than I expected so the falls were spectacular.

I used a 10 stop neutral density filter for the long exposure shots. Comparing them with normal photographs and choosing a preference is a personal choice. Personally I find the long exposure waterfall shots a bit hokey, a bit too contrived for my taste. Many folks prefer the long exposures of water motion so I will continue with this technique.

Here's a tip for beginners. Leave your tripod in your car. It's useless for 10+ second exposures due to wind vibration. I usually just place my camera on a convenient rock. It's "rock steady" and easy to use especially with a tilting monitor.
