Vernal Falls, Yosemite National Park, California
The Story of "Details"
The temptation to shoot waterfalls as massive and beautifully set as Vernal Falls in Yosemite NP is to go wide and include everything. The more I fit into the frame, the less I "felt" the waterfall. The beauty, I realized was not in the scenery, but in the details!
Punched in tight, our eyes can't wander past the rainbow droplets and the lights and the shadows and the silky-soft falling water. There is a lot I love about photography, and one of more engaging elements is the ability to take a photo side-by-side with another photographer while choosing compositions that tells entirely unique stories.
Sometimes, less is more. The beauty is in the details.
