abieleck,

Where did you make the top image? That's a great set of cascades.
The top photo is Lower Lewis Falls in the Gifford Pinchot NF of S. Washington. It is one of my favorite photos and waterfalls in the NW. I was lucky for this shot as the log seemed to be placed there by a photographer giving the image some character. Last time I made the trip up, there was a lot more logs/debris that took away from the falls a bit. Just depends how high the river gets during the rainy season I guess

I always find thats the biggest problem in most cases, is finding a spot with the best angle and the least amount of debris in the way.. sometimes I wish I had a saw.

Great shots by the way.

I like it. It induces a bit of vertigo or feeling of falling.

Here's a couple I took LAST January (2011) at Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis, MN - from BEHIND the falls (used my mad ice-climbing skills ). This winter's been to mild for any "good" shots.

It's not a competition, and as pointed out above , that's a unique perspective. A shot like that will give people ideas they can try out, next time they're near moving water.

Here's another one, from Ragged Falls, just outside Algonquin Park near Dwight Ontario.



Here's another one tess took at the same place, talk about a different perspective...

On the topic of Ragged Falls:



I can't remember if this is from the bottom of the falls or from oxtongue rapids, but both places are well worth the visit.

Great subject, Norm. One of my very favorite subjects, and lots of terrific shots already posted. Here are two versions of the same falls:

I am a native Minnesotan, and have photographed Minnehaha a few times but never in the winter....maybe next year for Xmas if it's colder than it was this year. The falls out here in the NW don't freeze themselves, but if it dips below freezing for a few days, then spray covers everything in about an inch of ice. It's crazy to see, entire trees/bridges/photographers encased in ice.

Here is an example. That's not snow you see in the photo...all ice
