Blackwater Falls, Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia -------

19 meters tall Blackwater Falls in the Allegheny Mountains is named for the amber waters of the falls. The water is tinted by the tannic acid of fallen hemlock and red spruce needles. Here is another photo of the same waterfall I showed you already twice this weekend. After a night of heavy rain it was expected that things had changed down in the Canyon of the Blackwater River. Working three days in a row with the same waterfall from different vantage points, with different light, and the subject itself changing dramatically was a lot of photography fun. For shots like this I employ the polarizer for having the glare on the rocks under control. I use the multiple exposure mode in the D750, which can combine up to three shots into one image right in camera. Using a stabile tripod is an absolute must for this technique and a remote shutter release helps to keep the surroundings of the waterfall sharp.
