I was told of these falls by a friend and am quite taken by them. There are small cascades in the stream leading from the falls starting at the pull-out on the road. I found the ice forming on the branches fascinating. I know milky/cottony water is not everyone's cup of tea but... I must admit i prefer it, in this case I kept the ISO low and combined with using f16 or smaller I had long exposures. I also used -3 fill flash to help bring out some of the dark moss on the rocks and still needed a bunch of tweaking in the raw converter. Comments and feedback are greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking,

Paul

This is a nice shot but for my eye I would have preferred the back part of the falls to be in the top right 1/3rd of the shot with the stream running out of the image in the bottom left corner like you have it.

The right side of the image has to much dead space and the image looks "left heavy", other than that I like it.
