Behind the Photography Image of Silver Cascade in Crawford Notch State Park


When I photographed Silver Cascade in Crawford Notch State Park, New Hampshire last year I was disappointed by the low flow of waters while the surrounding fall foliage was spectacular. So I promised myself to return to this scenic location in the following years to come. With a bunch of rainfalls days before my arrival and the weather forecast predicting on and off showers on the day of my arrival I figured I was in for a treat. Oh boy, was I right. Again the autumn colors were glorious. The waterfall was carrying plenty of water and after working the location and exploring new perspectives I settled a bit downstream of the pool below the falls. The rocks were covered with autumn leaves making for strong foreground features that lead the viewer into the frame. A small aperture provided the desired Depth of Field and long exposure time of 2 seconds at ISO 100. A polarizing filter eliminated glare on rocks and leaves while boosting color saturation.

During my routine post processing work flow I eliminated dust spots, minimally adjusted contrast, lighting and color saturation before sharpening the final image of Silver cascade at Crawford Notch State Park.

Good light and happy photo making!
