Natural landscapes: Spring-fed summer glory


There are more than a half-dozen waterfalls, ranging from two to 15 feet high, in this charming little oasis on the western Canadian prairies.
Big Hill Springs is one of my reliable “go-to” photo locations when dull overcast skies rule out landscapes. The soft lighting created by these conditions is ideal for intimate landscapes like this waterfall.
In this case, the foliage came very close to the crest of the rock, so I put the camera low to the ground to compensate.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, neutral density (darkening) filter.
