Fall in Kamakura

Fall colours at the lower gardens of Hase temple in Kamakura, Japan.  The Japanese really have beautiful gardens, and they come to life during the fall/winter seasons when the leaves turn spectacular colours.

Fuller Falls

These are the Fuller Falls, located near St. Martins, N.B. on the Fundy Trail Parkway. The falls are at the bottom of a ravine, accessed via a cable ladder that leads you straight down the steep slope. It’s more like stairs with handrails, but it’s all made out of wire cable and slippery wood rungs. There is a handy observation deck at the bottom, complete with sturdy handrails that I used to rest the camera on for the slow exposure. Without the handrails, this photo would not have turned out.

The overcast skies and fog annoyed me at first, as I thought they would hinder any good landscape shots. But they actually helped out here as the reduced light allowed for longer exposures of the falls. This helps create a nice soft and smooth feel to the water. A circular polarizer was also used.

Wallaman Falls

Wallaman Falls, known to be the tallest waterfall in Australia with a drop of over 250m.  On our way up to the lookout, we saw a cassowary and four babies cross the road in front of us.  It’s said there are only 1500 cassowaries in Australia (and possibly the world) so we were quite fortunate.  

As for the image itself, I felt the monochrome was a bit more dramatic than the colour version.
