Thanks all. This is the Sioux Falls, in Sioux Falls, SD. If you are traveling along Interstate I90, it's about 2 - 3 miles south off the Rice Street exit. Depending on recent rainfall, it could be a little slower or quite angry(?). I'm posting a couple shots in the gallery from the year before when the level was up fyi.
Congratulations on a great finish.
One of my top 10 for the week.
Very great shot and great content. I like the silk attempt. I'll bet you can have a lot of fun continuing with that idea later in the evening and closer in on some of the falls. I sure wouldn't do much walking here. I can sit and watch and listen to water falling for hours. I used to take a book, but now know I won't read a page. I like this very much.
Beautiful! As a fan of waterfalls I would so love to spend some time walking these paths.
Really cool shot vote
Thanks everyone! Pretty sharp DD, They do put on a light show on some weekends and use different colored lights on the falls. I saw one the year before when the river was overflowingand covering some of the walkways, a very powerful show of water. I tried to take a couple 1 second shots with a monopod but they didn't turn out very good. Thanks again.
Fascinating place. I have sent so much time exploring this photo. Look forward to knowing where it is. And Cali, I really enjoy your tech info. I am learning a lot from you. Thanks. Vote.
Very nice!! There is so much to look at. I'd love to see that place in person. Very nice silky water effect. I noticed the lighting fixture on the right. Do they spotlight the falls at night or something?
cool shot voted
Very nice shot - I really like the "silkiness" of the waterfall. Voted!
Ginnie, I'll tell you at the end of the week. - Suz says she is going from Arizona to WI and MI in a couple weeks, depending on her route, she may go right through here and if you didn't know to look for it you'd never know it was there.
great shot! I would love to know where this is so I could go
Thanks all, Suz and TD - Cali may be exaggerating just a wee bit, lol, it's not all that hard if you take time to play with your camera and try different things.
great shot and tech way over my head but tahnks for teh info have grabbed a bit on silky falls which I have always wanted to do but am not a great fan I love natural falls vote for you 4
After reading the last two posts, I've decided it's back to the paint brushes and easel for me. You two are WAAAY above my head in technical thinking. :(
Submitter. You're challenging our technical thought process. What if you bumped up the ISO from 100 to 200 or 300 (risking noise but...), That'd give you a littel more speed to play with. Drop your aperture down a stop or 2 (say F20). Naa...F22 gives us a look all the way to the "back" of the photo AND the foreground. Someone REALLY knows their stuff. WAY2GO
Thanks Cali and Suz. @ Cali, F22 and ISO 100 with a polorizer, I was also trying to get the longest shutter speed possible to "silk" the falls as much as possible. It was overcast but still very bright so the 1/8 sec was as slow as I could go. F22 and the polorizer might have cost me a little crispness, but it's pretty good full screen.
It's best I don't wing it....I might end up in the drink. What an interesting place to roam.
F22 - Someone wants us to see EVERYTHING from foreground to background. Well done. Lots to look at. Early vote as it has more than one winding path AND some nice falls. Someone has some technical prowess in their camera bag. Early Vote. Back later in the week too I'm sure.
