Almost two years to the day, I visited Fillmore Glen State Park again over the weekend. I wanted to revisit Upper Pinnacle Falls and photographic it differently. The first challenge to my goal was the Gorge Trail which, is the most direct route, was closed about half way to them. Taking the Northern Rim Trail gives one a good workout as the climb is up the gorge using steep switchbacks. The climb back down into the gorge was slippery and treacherous from the rain the previous night.
It was worth the effort. With the water flow much less than the last time, I was able to climb down on to a shelf rock next to the falls and set up my tripod. Moving the tripod around I found I liked a certain composition.
This time I brought along the B+W 77mm 3.0 ND 110 Filter to lengthen the shutter speed from fifteen seconds to over four minutes. This filter cuts down the incoming light by 10 stops. Here is the result.
I got the effect I was looking for. What do you think?
