This is a rare waterfall that can be both immensely powerful and flatteringly graceful and photogenic at the same time. The broad veil of the falls creates thousands of little rivulets of water that lend particularly well to slow shutter speeds and the color of the Cispus River at the confluence is very nice. There were two standout problems I could see in shooting the falls. One, there really is no way to do this waterfall justice in photographs - its simply not possible to convey the sheer size of the falls. Two, because of the immense size, the falls are in a very open part of the canyon and it faces north, so while it can receive flattering direct sunlight at certain times of the year, its not always going to cooperate. Spray will be a definite problem from below at high water. At lower flows, its easy to walk up the sliding part of the falls to get right in its face.
