Pixley Falls State Park
With the unusually long winter and cold spring it has been a slow start to my state park excursions. Pixley Falls is just 20 minutes up the road from me and Sunday was my first visit since it opened. I generally enjoy photographing the small tributary streams as they have a lot more character and interesting compositions for long exposures and silky smooth running water.
Yesterday though I was able to get a nice composition of the main falls through the trees and billowing mist. I had waited just long enough to allow the sun to pass far enough through the sky to not create the usual ‘hot’ spots when trying to photograph this waterfall. I have learned to better expose these scenes so I can get the image I want without having to bracket my exposures.
I’ll be sprinkling the other images into my blog posts as I work on them… 😉
