Two weeks ago we had a spectacular night, better than any I have ever seen here in the east. The lights where dansing above is and we even got a touch of purple Aurora in the sky. To make the night even better, there was no wind, giving beautiful reflections in the lakes.
... and a quick intro on how to photograph waterfalls
It was one of those days I had the need to go out to photograph, but I had nothing planned and no idea where to go! The sun was warm, but went in and out of partly heavy clouds. Earlier that morning it had been raining, and I knew that the condition would turn out very good for photographing waterfalls. Thinking back to the days when I hiked the local areas with my dad, I remembered a spot I haven't been to in ages!
Being back home in my town, means to start exploring local areas that I've never given attention to before. Whenever I ask people what's a trademark for our town, everyone says the waterfall/river splitting the town. Googling the waterfall to see what kind of images was already taken, I found that most of the shot's were pretty much the same, taken from the path way on the other side of the river. I decided to find a new angle, a less shot angle, and went under the bridge. Besides the normal boxing match with midges, I had a great time shooting in my town.
