The first stage of The Twilit Lens’ journey across America: perhaps the most famous waterfall in the country.

It was a cold and misty magic hour, the sun just beginning to rise, the roar of the water a continuous white ambience. Fog enshrouded the far distance and nary a soul apart from myself and JoDee. The time was right for a slow exposure photograph.

Normally I don’t enjoy maxing out the f-stops on my lenses due to the risk of diffraction, but blur was actually what I wanted in this case. The classic feathery water, the otherworldly atmosphere. It was like standing at the edge of a dream.

Plus the tiny aperture allowed me to stop the shutter speed way down to achieve the desired effect. 😉 At any rate, enjoy!

Exposure Data: ISO 100, f/29, 1/5

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.
