The Triberg falls situated in the Black-Forest region, a 163m descending cascade through a relatively narrow trough, down-slope above the town with it's name.
The trail takes you from the high point down through thick vegetation and trees, curving and with 9 major rock-terraces on the way (this is the lowest stage).
The stream is awesome, but not unbearable noise.
First in a series of some photos from the impressive falls, this pic. in particular, was deliberately tilted.
Location of the falls: 48.1263, 8.2274

What an impressive stream.
Such a beautiful sight and such good use of the natural framing. Excellent job and exposure.

Nice photo of beautiful Black Forest waterfall, very typical for this part of the world, especially during spring time. Nice composition. Greetings, Miro.

beautiful nature and superb presentation of it!
I´d love to see it one day on my own-looks like a real calmness oasis.
The scene is nicely composed and framed in vertical format.I´m also delighted by the way you captured so many different green tones.
Have a nice day

Unusual for you to give a photograph a tilt but, in this instance, it gives the impression of pouring the water down the hill! The stream follows a very well judged path down the frame, beginning at a strong point and disappearing at the bottom r/h corner.
The water makes a fine contrast with the sharp, verdant plants in the bottom l/h corner. Did you get stung? There looks to be some very healthy nettles, there!
Have a great day,

You have captured a lovely scene from the Black Forest. Love the way the water makes its way down through the shot from left to right breaking up the greens of the surrounding vegetation .love to know your reasons for tilting this particular shot cause I'm sure it would be equally as nice on the horizontal.
Have a good weekend.

Great capture of these impressive water falls. The angle of view and the use of the vertical format emphasises the height. Well exposed to produce a fine sense of movement in the tumbling waters. Excellent colours contrasts.
ourania (18566) 2013-08-23 3:28
this is a very fine composition. You seem to have studied the characteristics of this lovely place well and have found an excellent position or route for them in your frame. I like very much the diagonals of the stream, the trees and the bridge as well as the powerful movement and luminosity of the water. The dynamic features contrast effectively with the fresh and peaceful scenery that surrounds them. I also love the green hues and the textures. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Hi Ike, deliberately tilted, to make spring on the diagonal? Here it is rather stream with fast current rather than a waterfall but very nice anyway. I like such place, with roaring water and mos covered stones, and ferns. Beautiful presentation.
I have just read that one can go from Warsaw to Tel Aviv for less than 100 euro both ways! (with discount card and rather small hand luggage). But good offer, isn't it? Maybe you will come to Warsaw?

Dobar dan, popodne.
Interesantan tekst o mestu, sa datim podacima ...
Lep pogled na reku i zeleno drvece ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazana reka i obala.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje za vikend.
Good afternoon, this afternoon.
An interesting article about the place, with the given data ...
Nice view of the river and green trees ...
Good composition and perspective, nicely demonstrated rivers and coasts.
Nice afternoon and all the best for the weekend.

The tilt is giving speed to the current of the falls. The vegetation and the trees are framing well the falls. The length of the falls is giving depth to the composition. Have a nice day.
jhm (127927) 2013-08-23 4:51
You froze the river on a very well way.
The white water between the green vegetation makes everything pleasure to look at.
Panoramic view with depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture very attractive
Very well composition, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

You're capturing well this nature by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the downstream of the waterfall and the surrounding rich greenery. It's combined well by waterfall, rocks and green plants/trees. And, it's impressive in the depth of green in here.
UlfE (14128) 2013-08-23 10:39
Waterfalls are not always easy to capture. You have done an excellent job here. The focus on the plants in the foreground is excellent. I also believe that the vertical format was the best choice to include as much as possible of the fall. The weather was not the best but I would imagine that it would have been quite difficult to take a good photo in strong sunlight. Shaded areas in the thick vegetation you mention would have made it problematic. TFS and have a nice weekend!
nikkitta (8937) 2013-08-23 13:50
Cant understand why the TILTED, a creative way to present the fall?
Interesting composition where also is good to watch the exuberant vegetation
Waiting for the next, congrats
Buen fin de semana
mcmtanyel (5197) 2013-08-23 16:09
I like your tilt. The angle is large enough to hint that it is deliberate. It looks as though the water is being poured out like champagne!
jcpix (6504) 2013-08-23 16:59
You can never go wrong with scenery like this! Nature at some of its finest, the lush green forest with flowing water just has a life of its own...one that is conveyed well with this shot. The tilt certainly takes this in a different direction (no pun intended :)), and it's one that I think makes for a stronger visual. It's unusual to see something like this composed in such a manner, which is what makes for a creative and intriguing image. The sensation of movement is both seen and felt. Nicely achieved. Have a great weekend. Take care.

Hi Ike !!
what a good idea to tilt the frame..... it emphasises the fast running of the water and with all the elements of nature you have created a magnificent image.
Have a nice week end.
jmdias (48333) 2013-08-24 2:39
another curious falls with the stream letting down softly, almost like a big series of rapids. nice details we can enjoy here too.
jemaflor (74044) 2013-08-24 8:31
Well taken, original presentation for the stream with this dynamic tilt like the dynamic creek, good contrast of tones.
Cricri (92123) 2013-08-24 9:41
Une très belle chute d'eau dans un magnifique paysage verdoyant, le tilt donne un effet dynamique, belle réalisation
Indrasish (2349) 2013-08-24 9:41
Excellent shot here.. Love the composition and vertical framing.. Well light management and nice green color too.. Very well done..
Good night from Kolkata and wish you all the best..
eldancer1 (20750) 2013-08-24 11:54
Awesome capture of this waterfall! I wish we have them in Southern Nevada, we have them but only when it rains which is very seldom. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
Didi (51265) 2013-08-25 8:01
Nice view on the fall
The place looks like a view of the Loire River close to it's sources
fabbs99 (11066) 2013-08-25 20:24
Nice presentation of the water falls.Good sharpness, contrast and perspective, beautiful colors.Very well done,TFS.
cornejo (22464) 2013-08-26 5:03

Good evening and happy start to the week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
Miguel82 (14416) 2013-08-28 2:00
You show a beautiful natural place Ike, that river looks clean no waste on the banks, nice green vegetation, moss on the rocks, excellent pov with good sharpness
Have a nice day
Leksand (880) 2013-09-02 14:42
A very fine shot with excellent composition. Beautiful natural colors also. Great work!
adores (30805) 2013-09-06 7:49
Nature looks really magnificent here and you managed light very well. I like the shot and the tilt looks fine in this case!
delpeoples (48582) 2013-11-03 15:54
I live this type of image, where Mother Nature is just left to speak for herself. The beauty here is in the wilderness, how unspoilt it is and of course with the lack of people. Excellent lines and vertical frame, evading the eye through the image. I live the strong green tones and how they contrast with the powerful moving water.
Well done, enjoy your Sunday
