Michigan’s Upper Peninsula: The Falls

Not surprising, really, that the Upper Peninsula would be filled with amazing waterfalls. What is surprising is that I knew this and yet still forgot to bring the right neutral density lenses so I could get that cool silky water effect. But I worked with what I had.

Munising Falls are just outside of Pictured Rocks National. Hard to photograph.

Miners Falls were far more photogenic, and the hike to them was beautiful–right through the forest pictured in the previous post.

Mosquito Falls–smaller, but it was darker in the forest and so far easier to do the silky water thing.

Fun, too, to zoom in on little details.

Sable Falls–almost didn’t include this picture. It was very bright out, and I couldn’t slow down the shutter enough to get the picture I wanted without blowing everything out.

But my favorite, my absolute favorite–Tahquamenon Falls. They turn this amazing amber color in the spring due to the tannins in the water from rotting leaves.

Can you imagine this place in the fall? Definitely need to revisit.

Anyway, I’d have more to say if I still had any words, but, you know, it’s grading month AND National Novel Writing month, so I’m going to have to leave it at this.
