A couple of weeks ago we spent the day in Eau Claire to visit with friends. They were in town to get their computer fix and it would take all day. With time on our hands we decided to drive out to Big Falls County Park. It’s located just outside Fall Creek, Wisconsin on the Eau Claire River. Water levels were fairly good but it was difficult to photograph because of the bright sun. I ended up using a neutral density filter along with a polarizing filter to allow me to capture the dynamic range of the landscape and still slow the water down a bit.

This photo puts the size of the falls in perspective. It is not all that a dramatic of a waterfall but it is a very popular location for graduation and wedding photos. In fact, there were some wedding photos being taken on the far side of the river while we were there.

I prefer to capture small portions of the waterfall. This is a small rock formation with the water rushing around the rock.

This is an even more intimate photo of a small selection of water rushing over the falls.

More photos of Big Falls County Park can be found on my website.
