Sometimes photographing waterfalls is more about photographing curves.

The flow of the water is always curving in some way, and it takes a bit of mental training to see it with our own eyes. Slowing the shutter speed down results in something we can only imagine.

I saw these lines beginning to form, and twisted and contorted my tripod to get a frame set that only included what you see here. Very little cropping, with a focus on just the lines created by the very shallow ripples in a stream.

Black & white suited this image the best, removing distractions and making the curve stand out prominently.
