Palouse Falls

    Newer Older

    To be more specific, this is the lower part of the palouse falls.

    The height of the lower part is 180 feet which makes it higher than the Niagara falls. And, the height of the cliff I was standing on is about 377' above the pool of water. My tripod was within 1 foot of the edge of the cliff... it was scary to look down. I took this shot without looking at the viewfinder. This was taken at 14mm focal length using live view. Later i cropped it after correcting distortion.

      Beautifully done! I've heard that edge is a bit unnerving. Great composition ..... love that swirl!

      Thank you. do you think 50mm f1.8 would work for this shot ?

      No, i believe you will nead atleast 17mm on FX (or, 11mm on DX) if you don't want to stitch and want this exact composition

      Hi ProtikH_ Just thought I would give you a little background info about the Palouse Falls area. There really is no Joso Wa. There is a Railroad Bridge near by that as I understand was the tallest railroad bridge in the world for some years. I am not sure if that is still true. The bridge became known as The Joso Bridge. The bridge was named after my grandfather Leon Jaussaud. Since no one knew how to pronounce the name it became Joso by default. My grandfather was one of the early settlers in the area. The name is French. The Jaussaud family had a huge sheep ranch near the Falls. And until recent years also had wheat land near there too. As a boy I spent many summers at the ranch, so naturally found the falls a great place to play, although a dangerous one. Anyone visiting should be very careful indeed.
