The Korouoma Canyon

After driving through heavy rain we arrived in the Korouoma canyon late in the night and finally found some well deserved sleep. In the morning we started to explore the area and since neither of us has visited this location before, we weren’t at all sure what to expect. I knew that the Korouoma canyon is a popular place for ice-climbers during the winter season and naturally I expected to find a rather high and steep waterfall somewhere around here.

While the actual location which is used for ice-climbing didn’t quite work out photographically in this time of year (there was no water worth mentioning) this waterfall, which is located right in the beginning of the path down into the canyon, turned out to be rather nice to photograph.

Even though it was still early in the morning, the sun was already high up in the sky, but the dense forest did it’s best to diffuse the light just about right to make longer exposures easily possible. Additionally the waterfall was rather co-operative in that regard that the spray from the fall was rather mild, hence I was able to get close enough for some rather dramatic images.

I finally could put my much under-used polarizer to good use and reduced unwanted reflections and increase the overall impact of the scene.
