[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the third in the series of Silver Falls. Olympus E-10 came with a fixed SLR lens. It allowed me to go as low as ISO-80 and the MAX opening of Aperture was f/2.4 and shutter speed was as slow as -0.3, so I increased F Stop to F8. So here is the result.
While on your way to Salem, from Sisters, OR on Hwy 22 you will find Silver Falls Sate Park. I have taken several captures of this Fall, and this is a closeup.
"Nestled in the lower elevation of Oregon's Cascade Mountains lies a temperate rain forest. It is here that the Trail of Ten Falls/Canyon Trail can be found. The Canyon Trail and the falls descend to a forest floor covered with ferns, mosses, and wildflowers. You will also find stands of Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar. While thousands visit the park every year, it is large enough for you to find quiet places to sit and watch for birds.
The Canyon Trail is a nationally recognized trail system that leads hikers along the banks of the north and south forks of Silver Creek. " [Taken from elsewhere]

What and amazing shot here David. This waterfall is so good wish i can go here, NIce frame.
Well done

Beautiful work my friend! Love the framing and the amazing motion blur LE shot to show the flowing waterfall and amazing splash pattern at the bottom. Bravo!



Hi David,

I like the effect of the slow shutter and how it softened the flow of water. The impact of the water hitting the pool is interesting as well. Inclusion of the foreground bush adds perspective and anchors the shot, nicely done.

Best regards,

Hi David,
Which of the many falls is this? I had the luck to visited this park last summer. But was very unlucky with the harsh light of mid day summer that doesn't help in this thick forest area.
I am a bit confused about your technical explanation if I compared it with the EXIF data. The aperture setting does not match. But what ever it may have been, the result of the slow shutter is stunning. i can see that fall is a much better period to be there.

Namaste David Bhaijaan,
Muhteşem bir şellale fotoğrafı.
Harika pozlamışsın ve oluşan tülsü etkiye hayran kaldım.
