“A Tale Of Two Falls” (unreleased)

 

Another fun title…and project.  This one meandering through my mind for years.  Unsure of what to expect or what would be possible just knowing there was a chance of something…

Getting a chance to head down to the falls a couple of months prior I was stymied by too much water coming over the falls…rendering the scene, wet.   This particular day the timing was correct.  A bit drier over the previous week and the two streams were about as calm as they get.  Approaching the falls itself is a fun endevour.  Down a cliff over some rocks/roots/branches, etc and then of course making the way behind the falls.  For those that have been near a waterfall before of any significant size know about the wind that they create on their own from the force of the falling water.  This one is no different which of course makes shooting behind the falls even more challenging.  Then throw in the dramatic differences in light, and well, there ya have it.  Given that I’m usually end up shooting the most difficult thing possible…I combined those factors with a panorama.  The dance around the camera, light, and spray I’m sure was entertaining to watch.  And the hope was that I would get something with little to no water spots to work with.  Luckily I was right :)

 

Much thanks!

    Aloha Aaron,
    Mahalo for sharing the picture, and the story. I have been worried about trying to get there with my camera for the same reasons you had listed. I look at the “trail” leading down there and wonder, do I really want to take my camera and risk dropping it? One of these times I will. I need to head over to your Poi`pu gallery again, it has been months since I visited. and I know you have added to it since then. Aloha!
