Beautiful shots. I love waterfalls.


Thanks, Jerry! My three favorite things to shoot are the waterfalls, fireworks, and the Milky Way. Since all involve slow shutter speeds, I surprise myself that I haven't gotten a 'big stopper' variable ND filter yet. That would open the door on some interesting new projects.

Glad you enjoyed this set, Bill. Discovered that I had missed some, though, and added them on page 2.

Glad you enjoyed the share, AzPicLady. Quite different scenery from where you live, eh?

Quite pretty set, making a calendar is an excellent way to share your photos! Kinda difficult to "pick and choose", isn't it, lol! Love your waterfalls!
Made my first calendar last month.

EXCELLENT waterfall dozen, Diane! I truly have missed your posts. You really are a landscape master. Your use of light, composition, & image quality are unsurpassed. I mean it. One of my favorite series of yours was from the Washington Palouse area.

I just searched back through your posts to see if I had missed any (I hadn't), except one. Your Dec 5, 2020 post. I have to agree with most everything you said there. So, where else did you go to find a landscape forum? But please, keep posting here. These waterfalls have certainly brightened my day.

Landscapes are also my favorite, and like you I try to get the best out of my shot with the equipment that I have. I also don't mind removing trash, or some distracting element in the picture, but I keep it real. This "sky replacement" fad just seems all wrong to me.

And although landscapes are my favorite, I also enjoy the antique car shows.

Anyway, glad you're OK and hope your husband's health is improving. Welcome back.

You are quite right, Doug, picking is hard and I second guess myself a lot. But the process does make me pay closer attention to the original PP and I often tweak before committing to final choices. Amazing how one's taste can change year to year. Which company did you use for your calendar?

Great to hear from you, KT! You're mighty kind in your assessment of my sharing and I appreciate the lovely compliment. Your mention of the Palouse sure brings back a lot of wonderful memories--and one of the reasons I miss traveling out West so much.
I haven't found any particular landscape forum but have been blown away by many of the photographs shared on FB in groups like The American Southwest, Alberta Landscapes, Wyoming Through The Lens, Wonders of the West Coast, Eastern Sierra & Scenic Hwy 395, plus a number of individuals that I follow, including masters of astrophotography.
I understand why someone who has a really nice landscape with a poor sky would want to substitute the sky, but I personally count my images as memories and, as such, try to keep them true. Also, I have seen too many substitutions (adding a Milky Way or glowing pink or red sunset) where the colors were all off and the result looked doctored. Messing with nature can certainly backfire on the manipulator...tho many have mastered the process.
I too love antique car/transportation museums and have many images from Gateway Auto Museum, CO, Owl's Head Transportation Museum in Maine, Evergreen Aviation Museum, OR, and several others in Las Vegas and in Tennessee. If there's a transportation museum near where I am traveling, I'm stopping!

I hope you are healing fast because spring is coming and maybe a prettier one that we have never seen.
The falls photos are very very good. I live in Kentucky and have been in NC years ago and was blown away by the Grandfather mountain woodland and the cantalever highway. I hope this fall it will be safe to travel. God be with you and your family.

Love your water images Diane! Love also how in the first of the extras, the leaves complement the water! Joe
