Perched alone on this edge, in the dark afterglow, standing in the water, with it flowing all around me was a surreal experience I will never forget and a personal highlight for me on my trip. I felt like this composition in combination with the sky light captured the magic of this amazing place and brings you into the scene. And I feel the longer you stare at it the more details come out and the tones balance out more. Aside from trying not to fall in, the main difficulties here were getting the right shutter speed, focal length and dealing with no light really hitting the falls at all. In post, balancing out the warm tones with the cool tones and the ferociously blue water and intensely warm sky was rough.

This was taken on Saturday, June 21—summer solstice—when the sun bounces off the horizon, never setting. Was taken after midnight and the glow in the sky was just gorgeous—like I had never seen before. Had been raining all day and I came back at night for some long exposure action. All the moisture and mist in the air allowed for the most interesting, vibrant glow across the sky.
