A Hidden Little Gem


This wonderful set of Falls is nicely hidden away when the foliage is full, if you were not aware of it's existence you would quickly drive by it, on your way to two Algonquin Park Access Points on the West Boundary Line. I was told the locals call them Yankee Falls, but others have referred them to Magnetewan Falls, and other names. They are part of the Magnetewan Watershed system, and whenever we are in the area I "Must" stop to do a shoot or just breath in their Beauty!!!!! This Monday's weather was dark and misty, perfect for shooting with a slow shutter speed....and since I forgot my NDx4 filter I was hoping the sun would stay away....The waters of this system are very dark and a tea stain color, therefore giving it that yellow hue.

That is a gorgeous capture Susan! That sure is a beautiful little spot too eh? What were your settings for that image if you don't mind me asking?

You can never take too many pictures said...

Sure Steve...you can ask away anytime!!!!I was on Manual, with a 1/4s shutter and f.11..ISO at 200. I had a circular polarizer on, and was kicking my butt for not having my NDX4 grad. So this was a surprise it turned out not bad. The Header shot was 1/3s and at f.20, same ISO. The last time we were here, there was a torrent amount of water coming over and impossible to shoot.

Beautiful! I bet it is amazing in the fall.

I'm so glad you linked up with "behind the camera". I hope you will continue to join us.

Hi Susan. You really have found a hidden gem. Such a gorgeous spot - I bet it sounds wonderful when you're standing by the Falls too.

That's a lovely shot you've taken of them too. You've captured the force of them.

Thank you for your visits, I appreciate them very much :D)
