While hiking in Sequoia National Park, I came across this beast of a waterfall. After scrambling through thick brush to the edge of a cliff, I found the angle I wanted to shoot at. Precariously setting up my tripod on the edge of the cliff, with one hand hanging onto a bush, and the other carefully guarding my setup, I scored this capture. I chose to process this in black and white, as I thought it imparted a certain austerity that forced the viewer to focus on the cascading water rather than any of the surrounding features.
