While in New Hampshire recently (for the wedding of my amazing niece), I was able to get some shots of one of my favorite nature photo subjects - a waterfall.
Jackson Falls in Jackson, NH is my favorite type of waterfall. It's in an intimate setting, and the water flow is relatively slow (or at least it was the weekend we were there). The water level allows you to walk almost anywhere to compose photos. And the multi-level rocky terrain provides lots of different miniature scenes for great shots.
Here's the best images of "miniature scenes" I captured from Jackson Falls:
My favorite parts of these shots are the bits of color provided by the moss and the fall leaves. If they weren't there, these would be dull images of white water and brownish-gray rocks. A pop of color makes all the difference, and that's what I looked for.
The water flow itself is depicted differently in the first shot, where a faster shutter speed (1/250) captured the "details" of the water. The second and third shots used a much slower shutter speed (1/25 and 1/20, respectively) to smooth out the water.
The third shot is my favorite. It may make it in to my Nature gallery.
