  • Description: One of the Frederick Camera Cliques outings was to venture out early to catch the light at Great Falls with the jagged rocks as it flows into the narrow Mather Gorge. Great light this morning for sure, combined with the vast force of the water pounding on the rocks, seeing the spray and the glint of sun lighting it all left us awe struck.
