Photographer's Note

Shoshone Falls is on the Snake River near Twin Falls, Idaho. It is 212 feet high, and at times can have a tremendous amount of water flowing over it. I had heard earler in the week that the Snake River was running very high, and that the falls were exceptional. One report I read said there were more cubic feet / second of water over the falls at that time than Niagra, now I don't know if I can believe that!

So, after chasing beautiful skies from Boise, thinking of huge waterfalls with great spring evening light, and I ended up with dull overcast skies, and average to less than average water over the falls. The power generating station controls water flow, and I guess most of it was going through the generators.

I watched the exposure carefully so the white of the falls wasn't blown out. I was shooting hand held, so I chose a shutter speed that would help me with keep vibration under control.

There really was very little post processing on this image (other than the mirror); a little cropping and some level work.
