Near to Saratoga (very near), are some really beautiful waterfalls. They are right next to the road, but you can't see them and therefore are still a pretty well-kept secret. Perhaps also because the lower falls (not in these photos) is harder to get a good, unobstructed view of. I will be posting some photos of the lower falls later.
The first one is a 1 second exposure processed in color. It was processed using Nik Software and for high tonal contast. It looks a little like a HDR photo, but it isn't.
This second one was a 13 second exposure using a darkening filter to keep enough light out to allow for the longer exposure. Both were taken on tripods.
I'll be doing more experimentation with these waterfalls, including more photos shot recently.
Believe it or not, these falls sometimes dry up in the summer!
