The fourth photograph taken whilst exploring Kaaterskill Falls in New York, this one depicts Bastion Falls which sits further out and a bit lower than Kaaterskill. We had passed it at first while driving up to the main parking lot, deciding to wait until afterwards to see if we could get anything worthy here. When all was set-and-done and I gotten the shots I wanted, we drove down to the very small parking lot situated a five-minute walk from this waterfall. Carefully we made the trek down to the trailhead and I began running ideas through my mind in terms of compositions for the scene. I knew that I wanted a strong foreground, something that led up to the waterfall, drawing attention to it immediately.

After trying out a few different spots, I found one that I liked most and began tweaking my tripod and camera until I was happy with it. What drew me to this one the most was for sure the tree in the top-middle of the frame which seemed to look down upon me as I did my work. It seemed to challenge me, in a sense, to see if I could make something worthy of this scene; something that would end up printed in the homes of individuals around the world. While the latter part of that challenge is yet to be determined, I feel as though the former was. Especially once printed, the sharp foreground does just as I had wanted it to. Even on a matte paper, the contrast of the photograph gives the print a seemingly glossy feel that I love.
