Bridal Veil Falls HDR

Bridal Veil Falls

Eight camera raw exposure HDR merge. This photo was taken in the evening, just after the sun sank behind the opposite canyon wall, casting the falls into deep shadow. I shot eight exposures and merged them in order to get something close to the true sky color, while retaining the highlights and details of the waterfall.

Those cables you see near the top used to be a lift that would run up to a restaraunt at the top. While it was operating, it was one of the steepest lifts in the world. This waterfall has seen its share of rock slides and avalanches. It was decided that operating the lift was too dangerous. It hasn't been in use for years, but the cables are still there. Probably just to annoy photographers.
