A Waterfall (Indian Falls, Nova Scotia)

Digital original
I've been to Indian Falls before, but never really photographed it seriously, so on this visit, I explored the potential of the river (as it is a well-signed and easily accessible space, it will never work as a location to work with models, but I didn't see that as a reason to ignore it all together).

After making some images of the rapids, I walked downstream (below the man-made dam) and set up to explore the potential of super-long exposures below the falls, where there was a significant amount of white foam on the water. It turned out to be quite pleasing - and without a breath of wind, the foliage on the far shore stayed completely still, for the most part.

The final images were made back up by the falls, focused on the small water pools that lined the edge of the river. Overall, I really enjoyed working with the river, but (as is always the case) I wished I had a model to work in the space, to really made some images that would sing.
