I stopped by one of my new favorite locations, Fallsville Falls, in order to try to capture the beautiful waterfall surrounded by fall colors. Unfortunately, despite somewhat steady rain off and on the past few weeks, the waterfall was essentially dry. Only a trickle of water dripped off the edge of the highest ledge, though still pools of water were everywhere. However, as is often the case, there’s usually something else interesting to shoot, and indeed, the lower part of the gorge stream well below the waterfall had filled up somewhat and the still water with rich fall colors presented some excellent opportunities for capturing some great images.
Key here is one thing: don’t forget to turn around. A lot of times when you get to a location, you get fixated on the ‘main feature’ of a location, and turning around can often get you some excellent images, and even better: more unique images.

i like #1 especially because i have that lens but never use it. You have a great composition there. How far in to the scene did you focus to get the maximum depth of field? Does the 1/3 into the scene rule of thumb work?Focus peaking doesn’t work well with this lens in my opinion because everything seems to be in focus.
Love the first shot. Focus stacking?
Nope, one shot at f/16. In the full size image the background isn’t razor sharp, but it’s sharp enough for the effect that I was after, and I was much more concerned about the majority of the foreground retaining all the detail.
Beautiful landscapes, colors and pictures!
