    For those wanting to go see this waterfall - there is a trail along the ledge just off the beach in the pines, makes for easier walking to the site. Also, I believe there's another parking lot to the east so I'd advise to park there. NOTE: you could miss this waterfall. It's a very small waterfall, at about 18-24 inches in height. You can see that in the photo below that I have added.

    I was born and raised in MI, the LP, and never did I fully realize how much MI had to offer until looking through your images. I love this one in particular and hope to one day venture that far north myself to enjoy all that MI has to offer photographically.

    I was about to comment on your image, and then I noticed the recent post about the size of the waterfall, and I'm even more impressed! Great perspective for such a small waterfall, I had no idea it was little!! Terrific eye for composition!
