Hilton Falls_5511

As mentioned in my previous post, after photographing the old, rusted out cars and trucks in Rockwood, Ontario I made a brief visit to nearby Hilton Falls on Sixteen Mile Creek. This lovely waterfall is one of the many waterfalls that are found along the Niagara Escarpment and is located in the Hilton Falls Conservation Area.. When photographing waterfalls it is always wise to create images from several different perspectives.  One of the perspectives I am particularly fond of is that which can be created at the crest of the falls, looking over the edge. To photograph the scene above I chose to work from a narrow ledge beside the river at the crest of the falls. I excluded most of the surrounding forest due to the significant leaf fall, opting to include as much of the river’s flow pattern as possible. I did retain enough of the far bank and the brink of the cascade to maintain a sense of place in the resulting image. Hope you like the results 🙂

Please remember to click on the image to see the larger, sharper version.

Here is an archived photograph from Hilton Falls taken this past spring. Hilton Falls is one of the many waterfalls found along the Niagara Escarpment. The Niagara Escarpment is a UNESCO World Biosphere. This particular waterfall can be found in the Hilton Falls Conservation Area in the Halton Hills region near Milton, Ontario. I arrived at this location just after noon to bright sunny skies and harsh lighting conditions. There was the odd cloud in the sky so I decided to walk the trail out to the falls. As luck would have it, there were several large clouds moving across the sky that would block the sun long enough for me to make several exposures in more favorable light. This image is my favorite from the day. I like how this image due to the waterfall being centered within the vertical axis of  the frame while the escarpment cliffs draw the viewer to the cascading water. I also placed the cascade a little higher on the horizontal axis so that the river would be dominate the foreground.
