The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is beautiful. It offers a classic, even iconic shot at the lower falls. To be honest, waterfalls just don’t do much for me anymore. I shot a lot of them years ago and have just lost interest. So, rather than photograph the iconic scene, I turned my attention to the mist being created by the falls that was rising behind the ridge to the right. Perfect!
After making this image, we went to the upper falls where we met a small group of photographers. They were mumbling about the light being all wrong to shoot the lower and now the upper falls. I could not help but interject and said, “Really? I though it was perfect! No, not for the falls but for what was right next to the falls!” They looked at me like I had two heads. There is was again, that expectation thing getting in the way of another right answer!
