Today I take you up the trail further from Dream Lake. Emerald Lake is just another 0.7 miles further up the trail, but along the way are some beautiful streams, lush meadows and a couple of beautiful waterfalls. This waterfall was waiting to be captured on “film”. It’s as if someone planned this waterfall for a landscape in my back yard with the nice wild flowers on top, some nice bushes along the side and some nice stonework in the middle to add texture. It was just waiting for me to capture this scene.
I used my B + W 10-stop filter on this scene to slow down the water and bring out the rich dark landscape around it. It gave the scene a sense of being in a rainforest.
