Photo of the Month: Fall to the Valley
29/09/14 07:41 Filed in: Photography
For the photo of the month (or week depending on when I want to post again) I have another shot of Salt Creek Falls, Oregon's second highest waterfall. This one if from the top observation deck. I had to lean my tripod and camera over the rail to get this one because it is such a massive waterfall in terms of height. The observation deck is well maintained and is an easy stroll from the parking lot. So if you are ever in the area, this is a great waterfall to check out. If you want to venture down to the base of the falls, you will need to follow a well manicured path that does switch back as it descends to the bottom. So if you are not the kind of person who likes to hike, this shot from the top may be all you want to take. The morning is a great time to go as the waterfall faces west and the light is good. I used my Marumi CPL and ND8 filter and used a 2 second exposure for this shot.
