A Waterfall in a Different Light

A Waterfall in a Different Light
I’ve had an ongoing project to shoot the waterfalls of North Georgia. I have photographed a few of them since I took up the task, and steal a day when I can to go shoot one I haven’t before. I had also noticed that many of my shots of waterfalls look the same. Worried that I might be getting into a rut, I decided that I need to photograph waterfalls in a different light, figuratively. Essentially I wanted to do something unique with each waterfall, to capture it’s distinct personality. On Saturday, I was able to get away for a couple of hours, to shoot Ada-Hi Falls in Black Rock Mountain State Park. I was experimenting with some shots, but still felt like I wasn’t getting anything new. Then I noticed there had been a break in the clouds that was creating some interesting light at the bottom of one of the small cascades. Then I looked up and noticed these beams of light forming higher up the waterfall. I managed to get this shot, literally a different light than I’d ever shot a waterfall in before.
