    Both of these waterfall pictures have fine interpretations of the water falling over the brink.
    Excellent photo work to come up with great looking images like these.

      Thanks, Don. I appreciate it.

    The dam really has a cool design to it. I really like the first one. Again, it’s these places that resonate with us that call us back time after time. I’m glad you have this!

      Monte, yes they picked this spot in the river for this dam and a mill because there was excellent granite bedrock making building a stone dam easier. They planned well and it’s lasted a long time. Thanks.

    You just reminded me that I’ve not taken the D700 on a trip to Bull Hole just yet. :) Lovely shots, especially the top one, Earl!

      Paul, I always try and visit Bull Hole after there’s been enough rain to cause some overflow…else it’s just a lot of dry rock.

      Mark, thanks…it is. For every minute I spend shooting I usually spend a couple more just sitting on the rocks watching and listening to the water — recharging. I always try and time my visits where there’s few if any people there.

    I find myself drawn to the contrast in the first photo. It’s easy to see why this is a location that you would want to return to many times.

      Ken, thanks. Like any spot often visited it can begin seeming a bit mundane. But after a break it’s nice to get back to it.
