Bridal Veil Falls, Utah

Bridal Veil Falls, Utah

These falls are located in Provo Canyon, visible from the main road and very near where I live.  I pass by this way quite often on my way to various destinations.  Sometimes we fail to see the beautiful scenery that is commonplace where we live.  

Saturday I was out looking for a little fall color and didn't find anything that was interesting enough for me to stop and photograph.  On the way home I glanced up at these falls and decided I'd stop.  The sun was down and there was not much light, the sky was a boring faded blue and the fall colors were scarce, but I'm glad I stopped anyway.

Great photograph, Karen!
The long exposure time gives the waterfall the right silk gloss!
I took my Sunday sunflower NOT on a sunny, but as well on an overcast afternoon. Somtimes the absence of the sun is exactly what a photo needs, sometimes even a sunflower or waterfall photo!

Am glad you stoppep as this is a magnificent shot. I've seen this a lot of times in photos, but a slow shutter always put a big meaning to a waterfalls. I agree with you, we often do not see what is commonplace, despite its beauty to others seeing them as first time.
