Movement: Andrew Pusbach

North Clear Creek Falls is located at an elevation of 10,000 feet just off from highway 149 in the Rio Grande National Forest. The falls is just over 100 feet, crashing down into the canyon below. Due to its size, beauty, and accessibility, North Clear Creek Falls is one of the most photographed waterfalls in Colorado.
When I went out to photograph the falls, I knew that I wanted to create an image that was different from the others that I have seen. Much of the time, the falls are photographed from the scenic overlook, or from down in the canyon with a wide-angle lens. I made my image from down in the canyon with a telephoto lens, so that I could isolate the beautiful rocks jutting up from underneath the falls.

The sun was lowering towards the horizon, thunderstorms were building above me, and the falls were crashing into the canyon with such ferocity. Photographing North Clear Falls was an incredible experience; I hope to return to it in the future.

    Very nice image. I really like the B&W affect. The lighting is also very nice.
