Ponytail Falls, Autumn Study 2009
The results of my annual autumn Ponytail pilgrimage. Similar to, but slightly different from, the results from my 2008 Ponytail pilgrimage.
I also tried some wider shots (see first comment below) to include the fall foliage in the composition, but I kept coming back to this one.
As I was shooting, a large group of schoolchildren passed by on the trail above, heading back down to their bus in the Horsetail Falls parking lot. Most of them didn't notice me, but a few looked down and were surprised to see me standing in the creek. Perhaps one of them is a future photographer?
No leaves were placed during the making of this photograph.
