High Falls

While going through doing some backups last weekend, I came across a number of images I did not post.  This is one from the High Falls in Tettegouche State Park.  I made my way to the park for sunrise one day in July.  Sunrise is the best time to be at these extremely popular falls, do to the lack of people getting out that early in the morning.  I ran into a few photographers on my way out from the shoot.
