Look for the Mini Waterfall

Detail from Holland Falls
Condon, Montana


When we visit a large waterfall, we frequently try to capture the entire height of the falls in one shot. Sometime this is possible from one or two view points, but such an approach limits the variety of images you can make. 

An alternative is to use a longer lens and look for parts of the waterfall that have their own designs. There are often a variety of sections in the whole waterfall that make interesting combinations of flowing water, rocks or logs. Look for these miniature waterfalls inside the bigger picture for additional shots.
