  • About this site

    I use this site for several purposes. It serves as a very convenient way for me to share my photos with other people: family, friends, and strangers alike. It also gives me a place to critique my own work to try to learn what works and what doesn't as well as getting feedback from visitors.

    That being said, I hope you enjoy my pictures and tolerate my occasional ramblings. If you would like larger scale versions of any of these pictures, just leave a comment or shoot me an email.

Sweet Creek Falls (Revisited)

Posted by Ben on March 5, 2012

I had the chance to get away from work for a little while today and took the chance to drive out towards the coast.  Once I got over the mountains, the weather turned incredibly nice, and I decided to change plans and head back to Sweet Creek Falls. The water levels were much higher this time around, probably as a result of all the rain we’ve been getting over the past few weeks.  Here are a few pictures from the falls at the end of the trail.

The lighting was really cool here for this shot.  The sun was shining on the path in the foreground but the falls in the background were in the shadows.  I was able to use the neutral density filter to slow down the shutter speed for the water while still getting the vivid colors in the foreground.

This was from the “upper” section of the falls.  It was a little harder to take pictures here since the sun was directly behind the falls.  I had to position the shot to block out most of the sun, though the top left corner is still a little blown out.  It still turned out pretty well though.
