Earlier I have posted Jangkar waterfall.
Here, I am posting the view of the water flowing through the boulders at the start of our trekk.
The water is so clean and fresh that some of us drink it raw from the creek.
This is a typical scene of the beginning trekk through the rocks and creeks that we have to go through for 1.5 hours, sometimes crossing the stream, the rocks, and at times walking through dense jungle undergrowth when the rocks are impossible to climb.
At the lower end of the foothill, the rocks are round shaped and smaller. As we go higher, the boulders become big and sharp edged.
One explannation is this. The forces of water rounded up the small boulders and carry them down to deposit at lower end. The larger boulders are cut by shear force and due to large size, they are difficult to wash down.
As we go higher up, the rocks are part of large plates of formation. At the waterfall itself, the plate is almost whole pieces of unbroken formation.
I hope you like this view.

This shot is splendid. The water looks so silky and perfect. Nice texture in this scene. Your note was very nice. I felt like I was taking the hike in with you!! You truly have a knack for the water scenes! As Always, TFS!!

Nice silky effect on the water given by 1/4s. Very clever compo.

HI Bill. Very nice shot indeed with a good POV. The milky water of the falls perfectly matched with the tone of the boulders came off nicely. The hanging twigs with water drops added beauty. Regards.

Good clouse up to a hidden corner for sharing in TE, the water is a little over bright, and bright lights reflects by the stone too.

Very nice detail photo. I like sharpness and a long exposure time which made the water flow very attractive. Good job!

that is the type of picture that I like a lot and even do some, but never post. I have the impression that people here at TE is not very fond of it. So, I appreciate your image and like the long shutter giving that nice and gentle blurr to the water. Not quite sure if I would have used the full power of the fill in flash. You might consider putting a white transparent plastic in front of the flash to diminuish the impact of the light.

Good close slow shutter shot of this fall to give the impression of the flow. I like the natural color and details of the surrounding.
