Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up the shot of the falls on the bridge, part of Landscape Photography: Washington's Olympic National Park.
- We've walked through the beautiful forest…for another 1/4 mile to reach the iconic Sol Duc Falls.…Now, this is one of the most photographed…and famous waterfalls in all of Washington state.…It's a waterfall I've been to many times,…including the month of November previously,…but never have I seen an entire bank of the waterfall…covered in incredible ice.…I mean, this is truly a sight to see.…Now, as I approach the scene, I realized, wow,…this is a little bit unsafe.…I have an icy bridge to cross.…Now, instead of taking my camera…and running around doing hand-hold to compose,…I actually set my tripod and my camera aside…and I crossed the bridge as carefully as I could.…
