- Description: I arrived at Mammoth Lakes, well before sunset so I would have time to scout out a less photographed scene. Once I arrived at the top of Twin Falls, I knew this was where I wanted to shoot. I hiked up and down each side of the waterfall, until deciding that I liked the view from the top of the falls, best. My intention was to photograph this scene at sunrise; however as it was late afternoon, I attached a B+W ND 110 filter to my lens, so I could obtain a long enough exposure to smooth out the water, cascading from the top of the falls. My plan was to use this effect to add a surreal aspect to the scene.
- Gear: Nikon D7000, Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 AT-X 116 Pro DX, Gitzo Series 2 Tripod, Vanguard BBH-200 Ballhead, B+W ND 110 Filter
