Towards the end of my fall colour shooting this year I came across Furnace Falls on the Irondale River in Ontario’s Haliburton Region. This waterfall gets its name from blast furnaces, used to smelt iron ore, that were built near this location in the late 19th century. My timing for this year’s autumn colour could not have been worse. It seems as though many regions peaked early and all at the same time, followed by winds that stripped many trees of leaves. As you can see in the above photograph – why not make the bare trees part of the composition.
A 12-24mm lens was used along with a polarizing filter and a 1 & 2-stop Singh Ray grad filters handheld to hold back the sky.
