Angel Falls

Today’s entry in my “recently rediscovered image from almost a decade ago” series is this shot of Angel Falls in Byron, Maine.

In all the years I vacationed in this area with my family as a kid, I had never visited Angel Falls. To my knowledge, my mother and father didn’t know about it. I learned about this beautiful location in my adulthood through a friend who, unbeknownst to me, had also vacationed in the central Maine in his youth. Small world!

Between the directions my friend remembered and the help of someone at the Inn,  Angel Falls was easy to find. From the trail head it was an easy 30 minute hike with a couple of rock-hopping river crossings to get to the base of the falls.

As I mentioned yesterday, I was shooting with D70 with its whopping 6MP sensor. I also had a state-of-the-art $50 plastic tripod to steady all six of those megapixels and the kit lens (the very capable Nikon 18-70, if I recall correctly). I used the wide end of the lens and captured the entire 90 foot drop of the falls (the tallest in Maine!) but it was this square crop of the bottom of the frame that did it for me.

Processing was done, not almost a decade ago, but this past weekend using Nik SilverEfex Pro.
