For those that don't now, the Northeast US experiencing the worst drought in over a decade. Waterfalls and creeks are drying up, Autumn foliage reportedly isn't vibrant and when colors come, the lifespan is short. So what do I decide?
It's a good time to take some days off and shoot waterfalls in the fall!
I enjoyed my time off. I had to embrace the fact that, yes the water levels are not what we call normal, but as far as nature is concerned, it's just another version of normal. The falls and the foliage are still beautiful; they really are. In some ways due to the drought conditions this season, they are rather unique.
The 3 Falls are Dingmans (PA), Bushkill (PA) and Hemlock (NJ).
Shot with Sony A7r, SEL1635Z or SEL2470Z + filters (Polarizer, GND, ND)
3 day trip to Monterey, Big Sur. It was very foggy the first 2 days. Finally it cleared up on the way home. All pictures took with a7rii with tamron 24-70 f2.8 and zeiss 16-35 F4.
