Krimml Falls

I think the only waterfall we found while in Austria was this one, Krimml falls. I think I read somewhere it was the 5th largest in the world; a huge cascading waterfall that sure took us some time and energy to walk up. This shot doesn’t do it justice, as you can only see a glimpse of the falls – however when we arrived it wasn’t too busy at the base where we are here and I found this lovely fallen tree that just seemed to be pointing itself at the falls. There is no way a photographer could pass up the opportunity to snap this natural leading line.

It took a little patience to get this shot as when I arrived on the scene the sun was a little too high in the sky and meant that each image I took had a shaft of light where the sun was hitting the sprary, and this did not go too well with the image. After 10 minutes or so, and with my moving a little closer down to the tree trunk, this disappeared and I was able to snap this shot.

I was using the 10stop black glass from B&W so exposed this scene for 25 seconds, allowing the waterfall to turn from the chaotic mass of crashing water into this nice and peaceful, silky smooth curtain.

  1. Great image here Mike, you cant beat a good waterfall shot can you ? I like the way you have used the log to give you a lead into the waterfall blending together the foreground & the background.
    Waterfall Wednesday it is 🙂
