Nice waterfalls. I like the first one best, but each tells its own story. I like the camera shutter speed you used, which gives detail and shows the power of the falls. I do sometimes like the slow shutter look, but moreso than smaller and less robust falls than this. Nice set.

I quote Minnie because she usually says what I would'a said 'cept she says it first. :D I love Minnehaha as well, and since I've shot a lot of waterfalls hand-held since I hate to schlep a tripod I've argued (not always successfully) that the silky water thing has become a cliche, so there. :lol:

Thanks folks.
To be honest, I would have liked to have both, the sharp water and the silky water shots of these falls. There was just no way that I could pack a tripod with me. As it was, by the end of the day my knee was so swollen that I had to baby it for two days after the trip.

A bit of a funny side tale... Look at the rocks that are in the foreground of #1 of the Gooseberry Falls shots. I hopped over those rocks to get shots #3, 4, & 5. I was carrying two cameras at the time. I didn't realize it then, but I became a bit of an attraction and concern by doing so. Other visitors watched me in shock, just knowing that I was going to fall and hurt myself or damage my cameras. (A couple of times I thought so too.) When I returned to the bank, some folks approached me and commented on it. :)

Gooseberry Falls has three separate stages in the falls.

#4 of first set and #1 of second set are my favorites for the compositions and feeling of being there with you. Very enjoyable.

That's only funny since you didn't fall! I've always been a tenderfoot (I wuz bawn in Noo Yawk Citee) so even when I was spry I always but always hiked with a staff. If I had to go a-bouldering the staff was my third leg to hopefully keep me from going down. I hardly ever hike anymore --- I should but... I've thought a few times about those cool-looking hiking staffs that have a 1/4 x 20 thread under a ball on top so they can double as a monopod. Good ones are kinda $pendy, tho'... (N)
