I think I have heard of this being an area for surfing. Good image.

This was a 20 shoot pano . I shoot 10 shoots very fast one way and then about 10 in reverse going over the same area. I find this sometimes solves the jaggies on the waves it also gives a nice effect in the pools . These where all shoot jpg only due to the speed I required and the small buffer.

I thought you used some very wide lens there, the way the water comes out. Nicely done.

Good capture here. I doubt you could expose any better for that situation.

I am constantly impressed with how the E5 meter does on water, never seems to miss and I do rather a lot of "expose for the reflection in the water" shots it seems.

#1 is an exceptionally well balanced and beautiful scape, pick of the bunch from my perspective.

From what I've been reading and hearing the weather is particularly cold with heavy snows in certain parts of the States but not so near to you it seems. Is it that when the fires went through they exposed these rocky outcrops and they have not re generated yet, or is there some other explanatition.

I enjoyed your image.

Thanks Kim. There may be a Red Bluff somewhere with good surf, but it's not this one. Red Bluff, being a fairly descriptive and generic name, had been applied to various locations around Australia. Port Phillip is a large mostly land-locked bay and not being exposed to the ocean swell has no surf to speak of.

Hi: Been awhile. Nice to see some of the old OLY "gang" posting.

And nice to hear from you again George. Interesting treatment of the subject, but where's the chaser?

It has been cold here and in Oregon in general but little snow. Actually Oregon's snow-pack is way below average and that is pretty much for the whole state. Some of the areas in the Cascade Mountains to the East side of the state are far below average and even at around 1/3 of what they had last year.

Here at the south end of the Blue Mountains snow is ... not much at all. Usually at this time of year this area, the spot that I took the image from would not be accessible because of deep snow and there is none up there presently. So this year and unless we get the snow soon and have a very wet spring summer is going to be a very dry one indeed. Forecast for the next 10 days or so says some snow ... maybe but it does not look that it will amount to much.

This rock outcropping was before 1992 surrounded and covered by huge Yellow Pine and the fire burned quite hot and took most all of them from the area. There was some reforestation done but not nearly enough. It really seems to me (my humble opinion) that our "Forest Circus" would rather waste the dollars on working on closing our public access to our National Forest rather then putting it into our other resources such as reforestation which would be better use. In 2007 (i think that was the date) another fire burned through part of the 1992 burn and I do not believe the "Forest Circus" has done any reforestation at all in the area since that second fire.

Hi George,

Nice to hear from you after a long absence. I was disappointed in your picture though . It wasn't taken from the air and there was no chaser insight !!

Re: Stony Kill Falls--2
In reply to dharma108, 8 months ago

Checked this out through google.  The one site I visited made a big thing out of being prepared to see naked bathers in the falls.  I'm guessing this wasn't a problem on this visit, but you never no where those polar bear swimmers will turn up.  Still it would be quite a walk back to their vehicle after the dip!

The capture date shows up as Jan 5th but that is obviously wrong!!!!  Do you have one from Jan 5, 2014 for comparison?  I am sure it would be much different.  A nice looking building and love the green grass.  Wish that is what it looked like here outside now!

Have seen it a couple of times and driven over it twice on the way to and from the Detroit airport. It looks very nice from the location where you took the image and not so nice from the line of traffic I was in.

Canadian Club, who needs a chaser!

Collin, I assume you take pictures of birds and wildlife because you enjoy it a lot.  We don't get to see much your other images and that is a shame because they are without exception excellent!
