Enchanted Falls by Julian-Bunker Enchanted Falls by Julian-Bunker
This wonderful waterfall is another unnamed waterfall of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. I bush whacked a couple difficult miles to reach this rarely seen fall. There are three other great waterfalls along the way, all without names. I want to name this 'Enchanted Falls' due to its stunning surroundings that truly seemed to have a touch of magic. I hope everyone enjoys. Feedback, positive or negative, as well as comments, are always welcome.

The fall is around 25 ft. tall with a crest near 5 ft.
The nearest major town is L'anse, MI. Several miles of confusing two tracks will eventually lead you to a very small closed bridge. From there a few miles of hiking down stream will take you to this fall.

Technical details: Canon 7D, Canon 10-22mm lens (@13mm), 3-stop neutral density filter, circular polarizer filter, ISO 100, F/11, two image hand blend, one for the flow of water, one for the forest and foliage.

Southwest of L'anse, I am guessing, in one of those ravines? Next time I'm up there, maybe we'll seek it out.

This is awesome. It must have been tough getting the lighting to look as good as it does with what must have been a relatively long shutter speed. Good job!

Thank you, The biggest problem was the wind moving the trees during the exposure. I actually took two photographs, one exposed for the brighter moving water and one for the forest and foreground, then hand blended them in PS. Thank you very much for the kind words!

I lived in the UP for 6 years, where is this fall located? Great picture.

Thank you, It is near L'anse, The fall above is unnamed and unmapped, its a few miles of bush whacking to reach the falls. If you are in the area again I can tell you how to get there!

are there trails that lead back to them? that is cool though that there are unnamed falls there though...at least I think so haha.

There are no trails sadly, it becomes pretty difficult bush whacking is parts, but the majority is not too bad because one can follow of edge of the river. Waders are needed here because one must cross the river several times. If you ever need directions let me know, The place is magical!

Another beauty. Great colors throughout and wonderful textures through the water, trees, and moss.
