Description

Burney Falls--located in the Cascades of Northern California--is a gorgeous, multifaceted set of falls. There are two main pillars of water that cascade down from the top; there are also numerous smaller streams of water that emerge from the porous wall of volcanic rock. In this photo, I eschewed the now-standard "long exposure" approach many landscape photographers use; instead, I went with a fast shutter speed to capture the frothy power of the water cascading down. Although atypical compared with the "usual" photos of waterfalls today, I think it better captures what one would actually experience in person.
