The Rhine Falls #2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Rhine Falls are the largest plain waterfalls in Europe (Webcamera).|
The falls are located on the High Rhine between the municipalities of Neuhausen am Rheinfall and Laufen-Uhwiesen, near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, between the cantons of Schaffhausen and Zürich. They are 150 m (450 ft) wide and 23 m (75 ft) high. In the winter months, the average water flow is 250 m³/s, while in the summer, the average water flow is 700 m³/s. The highest flow ever measured was 1,250 m³/s in 1965; and the lowest, 95 m³/s in 1921.
The falls cannot be climbed by fish, except by eels that are able to worm their way up over the rocks.

Like your previous post you can actually tell how difficult it is to take a real good shot of cascades/waterfalls such as this. It's very easy to OE on the falling water.
And if you do get that right, the area around it is usually too dark.
I think you have done quite a fair job here. There is a bit of detail in the white of the falls and the surrounding areas look fine too.
From my own experience I know that a waterfall looks far more spectacular when you are actually there. A picture is just a still and soundless "thing".
It must be a beautiful place to wander about and shoot pics.
P.s.: how is the family doing?? your son must be growing fast!
