    Went out early yesterday morning. Got some OK shots, but nothing great here. My best shot of the day (and perhaps the year), I took a bit later with my Fuji X-T1 (and that hit #1 on 500px today!). Anyway, with these the biggest issue was that despite some rain Saturday and a damp morning, the flow in all the waterfalls was pretty lackluster, especially at Cedar Falls. This was almost the dryest I've seen that fall (and complicating some of the better views of that fall is a giant tree that has fallen across the gorge.) The camera and my primes performed admirably, though...crazy resolution here.

    Anyway, here they are:

    Sigma 19mm f/2.8:
    upper_falls2.

    Rokinon 12mm f/2:
    cedar_falls_wide.

    Sigma 60mm f/2.8:
    upper_falls1.

    Sigma 60mm f/2.8:
    reflected_glen.

    Rokinon 12mm f/2:
    cedar_falls_rocks.

    4th one with the trees / green leaves reflections is my favorite.


    ( shame whoever put that pipe railing up on the bridge seen through the trees didn't use black paint )

    Beautiful shots! I live only a couple of hours from there, but have never made it there to hike. I need to remedy that.

    Thanks everyone, part of the reason I was somewhat down on these is that conditions weren't great compared to previous times I've been here, and I didn't come away with very much in the way of unique shots that are appreciably different from previous visits, though I do like the first shot quite a bit.

    It may be sacrilege to post this here, as it was taken with my Fuji X-T1, but I have to share the image I got later in the day since it turned out so well and made the whole trip worthwhile.
