Visiting Bash Bish Falls State Park is always a ton of fun. Bash Bish Falls is one of the most scenic and beautiful waterfalls in New England. So glad to have the falls relatively near by in Berkshires County of Massachusetts, 2 hours and 30 minutes from home to be precise. It's been a while since I came out here photographing waterfalls but last Friday time was right and I traveled to Western Massachusetts to visit my favorite waterfall in the Bay State. Upon arrival, rain was still coming down in a good pace. I grabbed an umbrella and walked the 3/4 mile from the parking area to the falls. The adrenaline level rose with each step I took alongside Bash Bish Brook, the roaring of the falls became apparent and louder as closer I got. Then you arrive at your final destination, looking straight ahead, facing these majestic falls. It's just amazing and I love this scenic waterfall view. Equipped with my Canon 24-70mm lens I got to work capturing this highest single drop waterfall. Rain and keeping the lens dry was a pain at first, but luckily it stopped raining soon after I started photographing. This made things more pleasant and easier, allowing for further exploration of this prime Waterfall Photography location.
Using a 6 stop LeeFilters ND filter with an aperture of f/5.6 provided a long exposure shutter speed of 20 seconds at ISO200. During post processing I adjusted shadows, highlights, brightness, contrast and color saturation before removing image imperfections and sharpening the final Massachusetts waterfall photography image of Bash Bish Falls State Park.
In case you missed it, here is the link to my appearance on The Chronicle's Waterfall Road Trip TV show, amazing to learn about some waterfalls I had no clue they existed in Massachusetts.
Good light and happy photo making!
