Located on Spruce creek in the eastern Catskill Mountains right along the roadside of NY route 23A, between Palenveille and Haines Falls. The falls are located adjacent to a hairpin turn in the road. There is a small parking area just up the road to the northwest of the falls.
1/8th sec. @ f8, ISO 100, 26mm. Shot on an overcast day in October of 2012. I prefer overcast days for waterfalls, the reduced contrast from a more diffuse light source allows for a more even exposure that retains some detail in the shadows while reducing the risk of overexposing the white water of the falls. The lower light levels of overcast days also enables you to set a shutter speed that is long enough to show the motion of the water without the need to employ the use of a neutral density filter or the need to stop the lens down so far that you start to have issues with diffraction, which will negatively affect image quality. I used a circular polarizer to reduce glare from the water and wet rocks while also adding more saturation to the surrounding foliage. I wanted a shot of the falls that was a bit different so I climbed up a hill on the side of the falls to get this view.
