    I made the short hike to Thunderbird falls yesterday. It's a bit of a hilly trail and I'm soooo out-of-shape but it was worth it...

    just awesome, nice movement blur of the water, and the mist really makes this a great shot.

    I bet that water is cold.. and clean!

    thebeginning — I only joined last month. Nice to meet you too.

    Raymond — The water was pretty clear but earlier in the spring and summer, it can be quite turbid with glacial silt. I was actually close enough to be in some of that mist. I had to constantly wipe the lens off.

    The water was pretty cold but not too bad. I was up to my ankles in it, trying to keep my butt dry while getting a low angle. It was a squishy mile-and-a-half walk back out to the truck. Next time, I'll take my waders.

    Thank you both for the compliments.

    I do enjoy waterfall pictures, nicely captured and composed.

    Very nice shots. With living in Alaska we shall expect beautiful shots, like this one all the time.

    Thanks to all again.

    April — That was my thought and concern while I was post processing this image...that it would look fake. I'm glad you like it, though.

    Canoncan — I'll try not to disappoint y'all but living up to Alaska's reputation is a daunting task. The falls trail is only about 10 minutes from my house so I consider myself lucky in that respect. Some of the more breathtaking scenery is a fair journey. I hope to make a trip down the Kenai Peninsula to Homer in October and, with the wife's forebearance, I'll make some nice captures then.
