I made this image of Elekala Falls this past weekend in Blackwater Falls State Park, West Virginia. I got in close to these foaming bubbles and low with an ultra wide angle lens. I was able to get 15 seconds at f16 with my circular polarizer which removed all the glare from the surface of the wet rocks. What I like best about this particular image is how the bubbles in the immediate foreground are sharp and the bubbles in the middle ground of the composition are swirling. I shot a second image at +1.5 to bring out shadow detail in the darker rock surface to the right and left of the waterfall and manually blended the 2 images together in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
