Burns Valley Waterfall


My wife & I were invited to spend the afternoon picnicking at her cousin's cabin.  After too much good food and much good fellowship the decision was made to walk off the calories by hiking to a nearby pond.  Hiking past the pond we crossed a small stream flowing through a culvert.  Looking down stream I noticed that the stream dropped from view and from that point onward the ravine appeared much deeper.  

Totally hidden from view from the road the falls proved to be quite spectacular, certainly worth the short detour from our planned walking route.

One of the things I noticed, is that the Highlights in the water are blown out. I guess you might need a UV filter to prevent that? I know it was because of the amount of sun on the water during that time of day. I guess, Idealy, you would had been out there in the morning to nail it.

Great shot of a lovely waterfall, my only critique is the light is a little harsh but I guess you have to take shots as they come sometimes. well done.
