Whitehorse Falls

Umpqua National Forest

Douglas County, Oregon

Whitehorse Falls, Umpqua National Forest, Oregon

We found this beautiful waterfall in a State Park in the North Umpqua National Forest in Oregon. It was perfectly framed by the greens of the deep forest behind, and the brilliant colors of the moss on the rocks in the foreground. The diagonals formed by the hills lead the eye right to the central falls. A very slow speed exposure suggests the feel of the flow of the water as it drops into the pool below. A small aperture (and no breeze) allows everything else in the scene to be sharp, as well. It was a very magical setting in a most peaceful park.
