Water Works

These are photos of Gabbro Falls on the Black River near the town of Bessemer in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where I visit every spring when the winter snow melts. And boy did we have the snow this past winter - over 90 inches of the white stuff. We had the warmest March on record and over 4 feet of snow melted in March. The rivers had so much water in them that the waterfalls were breathtaking to see. The roar and sounds of the water cascading over Gabbro falls was so loud I wished I would have had ear plugs and the spray kept getting on my lens and also soaking me. But to see mother nature in all her fury made it all worth it.

Picture taken with a Canon 50D with a 10-22 wide angle zoom lens at ISO 100 at F/S 24 for a 1/2 second on a tripod.
