    A classic shot of a waterfall in Yosemite -- but still fun to get to this spot.

    Thanks, Alan. The old heart wasn't behaving itself this day, but it wasn't a bad hike up to this point...once I figured out how to get here without bouldering or messing with poison oak. It was tempting to try to get to the plunge pool, but I needed more energy and a decade or two off my age! This was February...during a good spring flow, this might be a tough place to hang out!

    Here's Granite Falls at the Roosevelt Grove of Ancient Cedars in NE Washington. There are two sets of falls here, but the scramble over rocks and logs to the lower set was enough for this trip. Next time I'll go back with lighter gear for the upper set. This is 150mm lens in a Toyo 45G with Rollei infrared film, scanned from my Ilford MG print.

    Nice, John...I was wondering about the tonality until I read the description. It looks to be fun place to work.

    Thanks. There was a nice flat place to put my tripod, but it took three climbs over the obstacles to get everything in position. Same way going back.

    I've been thinking about this for a couple days, and hope you don't mind a comment about this photo. The scene is delightful, with a complex geometry and varying forms. But in black and white, it gets jumbled for me and, at least at about an 8x10 size on the screen, is perhaps too busy. I would love to see this image in color, which I think can do a better job of separating areas of what are similar greyscale tones here with the addition of hue. Alternatively, perhaps a very big print would bring more to the image as you could visually explore it and see all the details and areas of interest without so much complexity focused in a small area.

    This is something I really struggle with at times in places with a lot of visual interest, especially using wide angles. I've been trying to shoot color more lately with an eye for not just creative use of color but also as a way to express those similar "tones" as distinct "hues" instead. I'd be especially interested in the brownish hues I would imagine those rocks having playing off the green forest/moss and grey/white of the water and rock.
