Emerald Gorge, Glacier National Park, Montana

With the advances in the dynamic range of modern digital sensors, shooting waterfalls and forest scenes can now be shot in mixed light as opposed to soft, overcast conditions of the film days. I love shooting these types of scenes in dappled sunlight as it adds a touch of drama not before possible.

This is a single exposure RAW processed in Lightroom V4 and Photoshop CS5.
