Towards Alum Gap

Barely made it out for some past peak colors after sunset. Originally hiked down to Greeter Falls and the water was just tricking. After realizing any composition would be a bust, I decided to see if I could make it out towards an overlook I knew of. Hiked back out of the ravine and made a mad dash for the gap. Caught the last light of the day with some soft pastels. Alum Gap is in Savage Gulf. This was taken partway between Greeter Falls and Alum Gap. I was hoping for a dramatic sunset but it was not to be. Here a couple I walked away with.

This was the shot I was after. Unfortunately, the waterfall in the background was a trickle making for a dud.

for illustrative purposes

Lovely location. Too bad the waterfall was a dud! Hopefully, another year you get your wish.

Must have been something to see the views in person. I actually like the water fall the most here.

Thank you AMaji.

Scott, thank you for the remarks. This falls I have shot often over the years and this was one of the poorer representations hence the term "bust" due to the lack of water flow. I appreciate your thoughts though

Some excellent images, John.
IMO a bit of tweaking the brightness/contrast sliders would give both image some welcome pop.
Out west, many of our waterfalls are normally at their worst when autumn colors are at their best .
