Lake Catherine Waterfall 5/22/2013

  • May 24, 2013


I’ve been out to Lake Catherine so many times now that I don’t even get all that excited about shooting it anymore.  But, I had a great opportunity to meet up with a couple of friends there and that makes is that much more fun!  I tried to get a few different angles again just to shake things up.

Ok, first up is just the typical shot.  Not all that unusual. (Click the pics to enlarge them)

Here are Bobby and Brian getting set for their shots.

I decided to wade deeper into the water for this next shot than I have in the past.  I was up to my knees almost but to be honest, I’m not all that excited about this shot.  I prefer getting some of those river rocks in the shot.

Here I was trying to feature some depth with foreground elements, medium range objects, and the waterfall in the back.  I’m not overly-thrilled with the sawed up log.

A close-up of one of the small cascades after the waterfall.

From the top looking down.  Had to Photoshop out a huge ugly limb stretching across the scene.

Going for a little abstract black and white action with this next one.  I’m really drawn to the underside of the streaks of water in the lower mid-right of the frame.

Another angle I don’t normally go after.  Little did Bobby know it, but he photo-bombed me big time on this one!  That’s ok, Photoshop to the rescue!  Like a magician, I made him disappear!

After a good rain, there are actually two waterfalls that join at this pool.  The second one is much higher, but smaller and almost impossible to photograph.  There are still a few nice areas to get close-ups like this though.

Lastly is a shot I’m fairly happy with.  I had to jump a 2 foot chasm to a boulder to get to the right spot though.  I was praying my shoes wouldn’t slip and send me spiraling down to my death!

All-in-all, these aren’t my favorite shots ever, but I did get some unusual angles and had a great time with some great guys.
