Waterfall

Easy access to a cascading waterfall. Close proximity to Fallen Leaf Lake. Great spot to hang out for the day. Very picturesque and a good opportunity to try different angels & lenses.

This amazing waterfall is right off the road near the Fallen Leaf Campground. Once you enter the campground keep driving straight just a bit further and you will see a pull off on the right hand side. Pull off here and you should see the cascading waterfalls between the trees. Park here, get your gear ready, and take a REALLY short walk to set up for the shot. If you are going to be here for a bit (time-elapse shots, different angles) bring a little snack and water, or set up an impromptu picnic.

It's a super peaceful spot with lots of photo ops. so bring a few lenses and be prepared to test different lighting options and angles. Depending on the time of year you can be by yourself or surrounded with 50 of your closest friends. Just take your time, pick your spot and make it happen.
