This was another “We will just stop and take a quick look” visit to Amnicon Falls. By now my wife knows a quick look usually means a couple of hours. I think I can count of one hand the number of times we have stopped for a quick look and left without taking any photos. This is one of my favorite waterfall photography locations because of the variety of waterfalls and rapids. Are all easily accessible by a short walk.
The water color at Amnicon is caused by tannin in the water. The tannin is the result of decaying vegetation in the Amnicon River watershed.
Conditions were ideal. A good water flow and overcast sky to provide uniform lighting and a low enough light level not to require the use of neutral density filters.
