Vernal Falls

Title – Vernal Falls

Photographer – Justin Griggs


It is a shot of Vernal Falls in Yosemite Natl. Park.  This is one of my favorite photos from the trip because of many reasons but mostly the 4 mile trek to get there and how well it came out.  I feel as though the composition, processing, and overall scene made this photo good.


This was shot with a Nikon D90 with the 18-105 F3.5/5.6 kit lens and a 8 stop ND filter.  ISO 100, 18mm, 3 shot bracket -2 0 +2 giving 1/4sec 1/2sec and 1sec exposures at F22.  Camera on Manfrotto 055xprob tripod with Manfrotto 496 ball head.  Processed in Nik HDR EFEX PRO
