Watery Wednesday #75: Little River Falls

Little River Falls, Fort Payne, Alabama. February 14, 2010.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

Betsy and I saw the waterfall pictured above on our Valentine Weekend trip to Fort Payne, Alabama.  Little River Falls is in the Little River Canyon Natural Preserve near Fort Payne.

We enjoyed our visit to Little River Falls for a couple of reasons.  One was that although we’ve visited this waterfall a couple of other times, but there was more water going over the falls this time than in the other times we visited.  The other reason we enjoyed our visit so much was that this was our first waterfall after we each got our new cameras.

Betsy has had her camera for a couple of weeks.  I got my camera last week.  It’s a Canon EOS Rebel T1i with an EF-S 18-55mm lens and a EF-S 55-250mm lens.  As you can imagine, I took quite a few pictures during the weekend.

I also experimented with RAW format.  This is the first camera I’ve had that supported RAW and I’ve enjoyed seeing what kind of images I could capture.  I took the picture above in RAW and then converted it to JPEG for posting.

I’m sure I’ll be sharing more of my experiments with you in the days ahead.

    I look forward to seeing more of your “experiments”. I don’t even know what “raw format” is.

  2. MaryBeth Says:

    I echo Susie.

    Love this waterfall with lots of water rushing over the rocks.

    I have a Canon SX20IS and hope the next one will be a Rebel. Gotta save my pennies. MB

  3. Happyone Says:

    I don’t know what raw format is either. You’ll have to do a post about it. 🙂

  4. Bloodhound Says:

    I look forward to seeing the results of your ‘experiments’.

    I’ve taken photos in raw but never done anything with them.
    Perhaps your work will encourage me?

  5. Jen Says:

    Most excellent picture and good time it sounds like,
    I’ve heard of RAW, but don’t know all the details.

  6. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    I have seen the camera term “RAW” before, but am clueless as to what it means. Whatever it is, I’m sure it’s beyond me. But what a great picture. Blue, brown, and white. Again, I have to remark on the blueness of most of these waterfalls!! Could you safely drink most of the water?

  7. Tricia Says:

    I’ve heard people talk about RAW b4, but never really knew what it meant. I thought it just meant straight out of the camera w/ no editing.
    I love the color of the blue/green water w/ the falls cascading over the rocks – Beautiful!

  11. Ruth Hiebert Says:

  12. Cheryl Says:

    The water is such an amazing color. I too don’t know what “raw” is. Perhaps you can give us some tips sometime?

  13. Rose Says:

    I bet you are going to love your new cameras….I very seldom use the raw format…I can spend way too much time fooling with them when I do.

  14. lawstude Says:

    the shot was absolutuely stunning.

    Lovely waterfall photo. I’m interested to learn what you think of RAW. I’ve met folks who use it all the time but I’ve not experimented with it at all … mainly because the files are so HUGE and I take LOTS of photos.
    Hugs and blessings,
