Provo River Falls

Provo River Falls, Utah

This picture will remind me of yesterday's little day trip. (I will also remember that delicious strawberry milk shake in Heber on the way home!) Enjoying landscape photography as I do, I feel so fortunate to live within a few hours drive of such a diversity of beautiful scenery from lush alpine forests to desert red rock country.

NOTES FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS:
Patience really pays off in landscape photography.  I quickly found my composition for this shot, set up my tripod, adjusted my camera settings and was ready to go.  Unfortunately the light was horrible with glare and hot spots mixed with deep shadows.  So I made myself comfortable on a hard rock and waited about 45 minutes for the sun to dip behind the trees, creating more even light, with a bit of glow shinning on the waterfall.  I think I was the only photographer who was there at the same time I showed up, who waited for better light.

Gorgeous

(We need more falls in FL)

We'd have to have a hill, I guess. Not many of those here.

That perfect moment, when we lived at Lake Tarawera, there were those precious moments when the Mountain turned that brilliant pink on a cold winter's late afternoon. Blink, and it was gone,Love the water effect, so worth the long wait.

Another OMG. I am a waterfalls fan and at 64 sometimes still take very long hikes through our dense tropical forest just to reach waterfalls. This is after long bus rides, planes and boats! Can you imagine that. Then my shots are not even half lovely as this one....
