I read about a hike close to my house with a couple of nice waterfalls, so I set off to check them out. I guess I should have read closer and got the gps coordinates to the falls because I never found them. I did find some fantastic scenery though. I'll try to head back in the next week or 2 to find the falls.

stunning, beautiful colours. Did you use a polariser?

Love the waterfall shots, what shutter speed did you use?

Love the shots, the third is a bit too green-yellow for my taste, but that's personal preference. The waterfall shots are breathtaking, especially the last one. I love the smoothness of the water, the colours and sunlight around the trees and the texture on the rocks.

Keep them coming, I'd like to see more!

Thanks Max and Evan, I was using a polariser on the lake shots. The stream I was using a 3 stop ND filter, and shutter speed was around 3 seconds. I went back last night and found the big waterfall, I'll post them when I get time to review them. :-)

It's a pretty good sized waterfall for a small stream. Also I decided the the larger size from flickr is a little to big for the forum post, you can click any of theme to view them large on flickr though. Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous colours. The last one of the valley is my favourite!

Thanks evolution, that's my fav too. I'm going to order a large print from one of them but my wife wants the Golden Cascade and I want the Valley.....we might have to flip a coin :-)

You can always print both. Both are wall worthy. :)

Went to a hobby store that was having a 50% off sale and ended up getting 3 frames. Printed the Valley and one other on my Canon printer at 13x19 and framed those. Then ordered a 20x30 print of the golden cascade to go in a bigger frame.

This is the first time I've framed any of my shots, and so far I'm pleased. I should get the 20x30 sometime this week so I'm hoping it turns out good as well.

Thanks again for the comments!

How lucky you are to have such stunning scenery in your back yard. Awesome shots.
