The Upper Peninsula of Michigan has nearly 200 named waterfalls and somewhere in the ballpark of 324 total falls. Many of these falls are in remote locations well off the beaten path and require a little effort to get to while others are right off the parking lot and quite easy to get to . Some large, some small and some are more like rapids but equally impressive in their own way regardless. I've put together a small collection of some of my favorites. I think these falls in particular have just a little more character than most.... through my eyes atleast.
Waterfalls are probably my most enjoyable subjects to shoot. There are so many compositional possibilities, it's too easy to get carried away and loose yourself for hours setting up different compositions. But I've found that shooting waterfalls is much like shooting any other scene in landscape photography: the best shots come in low light, and the same is true for waterfalls, the ideal time is while the sun is getting near the horizon or just rising above. Mid day waterfall shots just don't have the mood, color or contrast that the early morning or late evening light can provide. I hope you enjoy these two pages of Michigan's gems.
