Double Falls

Uploaded: October 18, 2008


This amazing location required a predawn cross country hike through grizzly country up on Logan Pass in Glacier National Park. It was well worth the effort. Streams cascading off all sides of a bowl shaped valley converge at this narrow slot in the rocks. During the summer melt off water flows in from all sides creating four of five separate falls, but in the fall just the two main falls remain.

Two stop manual blend. Canon 5D, 16-35mm f/2.8 lens, 3 stop GND filter, circular polarizer, 3.2 sec @ f/10 (sky), 15 sec @ f/10 (fore ground), ISO 100

I'm surprised nobody has commented on this amazing image yet! You made a great effort to capture such a splendor! I admire your determination, skill and artistry. The cascade is still dynamic and the distant dawning sky that embraces this rugged terrain makes a majestic harmony in this breathtaking nature. #1025067

This is indeed a great capture, given what you had to do (did you carry pepper spray I hope?) and given the result here.
Glacier is so awesome anyway and this just adds to it for guys like me who are too old to go trapsing around in the woods chasing grizzlies!!..:)
Nice work and very nice gallery, not suprised at your success!
