Hey Chris. I notice that you are closer to the right bank of the creek. When you left the parking area and got on the trail, did you go left or right at the first fork in the trail, and if the left fork, did that take you to the falls as well, and allow you to get to the spot for your shot, or did you just cross over near the edge of the lower falls and then climb down?
When I went there yesterday, I stayed to the right at the fork, came down the steep hill to the rock shelter, and then down from there. There is a spot in your photo just above the lower falls where you see what looks like a path falling down the bank. This is how I got to the top of the lower falls. However, not wanting to get my feet wet, let alone all of me and my camera gear, and just flat out not trusting the stepping stones conveniently placed across this same spot, I decided to stay dry. Also, my knees have some issues, so the thought of a fall on top of the lower falls did not appeal to me, and the fact that I was the only person there made me decide to err on the safe side.. Otherwise, the falls are beautiful and I plan on going back soon.
I still really dig your shot and the others you added. Beautifully done.
