    My artistic impressions of the falls on a 19 deg. F early January morning, and a much warmer, foggy April morning. D200, 18-70 kit lens, hand held with elbows propped on wall.

    Multnomah Falls is the most challenging place I have ever shot, so one of these days I will go back there, but next time I will bring a tripod and an ultra wide lens - neither of which I had for these shots.

    How very cool to see the identical shot taken at two different times.

    For some reason I prefer the first, even though I'm usually a fan of green foliage

    Very nice Marc, I prefer the composition and angle of the first shot but the color of the second one.

    The beauty of visiting the place when it's below freezing is that you can stand where you want to compose a shot without 400 people standing front of you. (Crampons would be good :) ) Some years, the falls will freeze up almost solid.

    During warm weather, there is a continuous stream of people by the carload and busloads of tourists from before sunup, until after sundown - you take what can get!

    I can imagine how difficult it is to get a sharp image there. And i know its selfish but busloads of tourists are annoying. So as you suggested winter is really good for photography.

    Oh and i almost forgot, i like both of them but for some reason find the second one closer to me. Its probably because of the shutter speed and the effect it has on the water.

    Both are very beautiful shots, can't really pick one over the other. How are you going to fight the mist with an ultra-wide lens? I was there in January with my 11-16 and lost the battle in a landslide (my camera is still shaking off the water :)). My next time will hopefully be with a sharp long lens.

    Both are great shots..

    I like the green contrast woth the water of the second..

    Looks like lots of spray, or the typical rainy day there.............

    I need to get back.. I have a couple of very faded prints from over 30 years ago....:D

    Larry, as I said in your thread - I'm convinced your shot was indeed taken here. Bring out the others too!
