Bridal Veil Falls (Again)

 

In June of this year, the Telluride valley was choked with smoke from the Durango fire.  So the images are very hazy.

Five years ago we arrived to find the falls frozen!

And Eleven years ago I just had an old camera that I didn't know how to work properly.  So I've yet to get a beautiful shot of these beautiful falls... but I'll keep going back until I do!!!!

No wonder you are fascinated by this place - your photos get better and better, and one day the Falls won't be frozen or obscured by smoke
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's pretty inspirational! Thank you so much, Lisl... yes - one day! smile
No matter what happens around her, Elizabeth, she still seems to be celebrating!

I think you never can have too much pictures of this fabulous falls. Great pictures, Elizabeth. I have to say that the people that built that house much have steel nerves and faith... I bet the view is fantastic up there.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Ginnie!
That's actually a hydro-electric power plant... Cool,eh?!

A bit of twiddling and the smoke can be eliminated in a trice. Spectacular aren't they..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - I'm not that great at twiddling... but this is actually post- twiddle! When I went farther with it, the image got more "harsh" and grainy than appealed tome. Perhaps in more capable hands it might be better.

Yes - spectacular is the word!

I can see exactly why the called it that, and I suppose that house has to put up with the noise of the falls.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - it looks just like a very long isle veil, doesn't it?!

The sight of a frozen waterfall must be something to behold E
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It was pretty amazing!

It's a good reason to go back and try again. It seems that much of the Rockies and westwards have been affected by major fires this year and the air quality is very poor. My trip last year was blighted by smoke. My own trip to see these falls (based on your recommendation smile ) was in rain so I never got the best view either.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes indeed!
The fires are getting worse and worse...
I am determined to catch a good shot of her!
hazy or not, they have a certain attitude to them!! bravo!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Indeed... Thank you, Rob!!

It sometimes work to diminish the influence of smoke or fog, bu tuning the contrast and lighting.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - which I'd already done quite a bit of... Doing more seemed to make it look very harsh and grainy - so I quit here. But in the hands of a more capable twiddler - it could be accomplished!
They are all good shots Elizabeth, I actually like the second one with the surrounding landscape.
I have a problem with my SC blog at the moment, apologies if I appear to be a bit aloof with replies etc., hopefully it will be sorted soon.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Brian! I'm glad you think so!
You just join us when you can! smile
I liked every one of them.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh, Mary - thanks so much!

Gorgeous views despite the smoke's presence!! No matter how many times you visit, you can never tire!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Steven... I'll get a better shot one day!
And no - I'll never tire of this view!
A wonderful group of images, Elizabeth. Seeing that shot of the frozen falls reminds me of the time in winter when I visited Niagara Falls and they appeared to be frozen even though, because of their size, it is said to be an illusion.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Beverly!
That would have really been something!!!
