10 Mar 14. We've seen previously both the initial drop of the Firehole River Falls and the falls themselves, so we'll complete the picture with how the river looks immediately downstream of the falls. Where the water disappears on the left of the image is the falls proper. While it is not a particularly large fall by any measure, the rocks mid channel and timber jutting out into it would render it a rather dangerous falls to transit. But it is beautiful to both hear and see, and with the wind properly participating, you get the added benefit of a nice mist to make the experience complete. As treacherous as it might be to go down that falls, getting to photograph is exactly the opposite! The easiest place to grab your shots in the area downstream, although there is no specific location earmarked to take photos in this area. At the falls area is a decent sized parking lot and the area above the falls has a very nice parking lot however the access to get your photos is a bit obscure. None-the-less the access over all is quite nice and a fun site to capture. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture priority; ISO 200; 1/5 sec @ f / 25 on a tripod.
