Roadside waterfall spotted when taking a curve on the SS26, from Couremayeur to Aosta.
Located near a village called Pre Saint Didier (map: 45.7706, 6.979).
Climbed on a short trail, to take this breathtaking view, but pic. is missing the roar of the falling water...

The vertical format usefully gives the image depth, emphasising the height of the falls. I like the contrast between the silvery rushing torrent and the surrounding greenery in this nicely lit image.

I wish we had more rain so we can have waterfalls, but even the famous Yosemite's Merced river is almost dry. Nice capture of this roadside waterfalls with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

a wonderful vertical frame filled with natural beauty and dynamism thanks to your upward point of view and careful composition. I like very much the luminosity and dynamism of the water as it's crossing the frame powerfully amid the very sharp, lovely and interesting natural textures. Light and colours are absolutely delightful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

The trees and the rocks are framing well the waterfall. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the waterfall. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

tu nous présentes une superbe cascade dans son écrin de verdure et on peut percevoir la puissance à laquelle l'eau descend de la montagne

Roaring mountain stream cascades falling from the rocks. Around the stream, the June fresh greenery. Wonderful corner of the mountain nature. Wonderful colors and sensational sharpness.
הצהריים טובים. מפלי נחל הר שואגים נופלים מהסלעים. מסביב לנחל, יוני הטרי הירק. פינה נפלאה של טבע ההר. צבעים נפלאים וחדות סנסציוני.

interesting how the pine trees are very close of the stream in the higher area. beautiful this vertical framing catching many details of this cascade.
adramad (27556) 2013-01-05 7:48
Great POV on this vertical composition, showing us completely this wonderful waterfall, impressive as the waters are opening way between the trees, rocky slopes for those.
Beautiful colors on a beautiful day in magnificent light.
Enjoy the weekend.

Nice landscape from Italy. Good chosen format which allows the viewer to follow the scenery from top to the bottom.
TFS and best regards
ACL1978 (5783) 2013-01-05 8:45
You've expressed the scale of this fall well, Ike, and though we can't hear it, we can certainly imagine the sound! The fast shutter freezes the movement well, giving us, I think, a better sense of the power of the falls than a longer exposure would have. Good bright greens provide it a nice setting as well. TFS!
UlfE (13730) 2013-01-05 9:16
A really fine and wellcomposed photo of the roadside waterfall. The tree in the foreground and the rock in the right bottom corner contributes to the attractiveness to the scene. TFS and have a nice evening!
boa (4313) 2013-01-05 11:39
the roar from the falling water is perhaps impossible to hear from a photo but i can almost hear it when i see this dramatically shot. I like your chosen view, it looks like you are standing in the water. Sharp and clear shot with good colors,Tfs!
Have a nice evening.

Amazing how water droplets gather in mountain sides to perform such beautiful downhill shows for the joy of photographers and surrounding greenery that benefits of abundant moisture!
A perfect allusion to the idiom "United we stand..." to dig rock!
Cricri (86463) 2013-01-05 22:02
Belle chute d'eau dans cet endroit sauvage, fait de végétation et de rochers, bon POV et lumière, oui c'est dommage qu'il n'y a pas le son, mais j'imagine et c'est bien agréable :-)

I guess looking at the picture we can almost imagine the sound it was accompanied with. Very impressive view, you were lucky to spot it. Good presentation in a pleasant strong light.
Very well done,
krzychu30 (8879) 2013-01-06 2:02
You captured here really gorgeous place Ike.
To hike this trail must have been a great pleasure for you,even if it is quite difficult terrain to hike.The composition and the way you frame the scene let us admire this amazing waterfall in all its glory.Also quality is superb.The image has very goodclarity,contrast and beautiful,vibrant colors.
Have a nice sunday
Royaldevon (17791) 2013-01-06 2:31
Good Morning Ike,
Yes, the noise would add to the overall impression, but there is no doubting how spectacular the scene is! With your upward view, you have emphasised its height, whilst the cascading water impresses upon us its dynamic fall.
I do prefer to see water that is cascading and splashing, like this, rather than those that are taken with a slow shutter speed..
Have a lovely Sunday,
danos (74020) 2013-01-06 22:48
Good morning Ike,
nice the view of the waterfall as fall from this altitude creating this splendid optical effect.I like the light and the colour management as the beauty of the image.
Have a good week,Danos
bayno (16209) 2013-01-07 4:31
Wonderful place Ike... captured with the right exposure...so nice colors and light...also here we can see the power of the nature...well done...
have a good day...
TopGeo (37994) 2013-01-07 4:54
Excellent composition and good of colors of natural and the waterfall and the whole surrounding area are beautiful, I really like the vantage point of captured and composition of this image.
A great photo.
josepmarin (55051) 2013-01-08 9:25
the image is very luminous and has a few magnificent colors.
I like the vertical framing that emphasizes the beauty of the waterfall, with its white foam in the middle of the green tones of an exuberant vegetation. An excellent work.
jcpix (3299) 2013-01-08 19:04
Difficult choice here Ike, I'm not sure which vantage point I like more of this particular waterfall, both of your shots are appealing. I do like the closer view and tighter framing though on this one, I can almost feel the mist and hear the roar of it cascading down the mountainside. Great composition and well presented. Mother Nature is certainly beautiful!
Kielia (20463) 2013-01-09 8:02
this is a lovely picture with the dynamic power of the water fall in a wonderful light. Lovely colors on the trees too.
emilbo (20852) 2013-01-10 15:50
J'adore les chutes et ta photo est magnifique. Il me semble entendre le bruit de l'eau.
L'exposition est à point ce qui donne la réalité de l'eau qui coule. Les rochers et la végétation qui bordent la chute sont des plus intéressants et la bonne gestion de l'éclairage donne de superbes couleurs.
Cordiales salutations du Canada,
rudiceuppens (555) 2013-01-14 4:16
A waterfall worth his name. Good composition (vertical format) and natural colours. With the noise of the falling water it will be a fascinating place,
jurek1951 (35765) 2013-01-16 11:30
A nice capture of this beautiful and tall waterfall. Very good capture with slow shutterspeed. Excellent composition and very good and informative notes.
jemaflor (68943) 2013-01-16 12:27
Impressive waterfalls well captured from a perfect angle, good management for the contrast between water and rocks, tfs.
dip (21919) 2013-01-17 5:31
very good choice of POV to show us through your photo this beautiful scenery,very well captured!
fabianoleite (9016) 2013-01-28 6:31
Great waterfall, beautiful place, I like the balasnce of rock, green and water, and we can feel the strength of the water. Good work, congratulations!
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-02-06 1:52
This looks like a lovely waterfall and an excellent place to stop for a little rest. Your composition is very good. I love the striations of the layered rock and that lovely spray of blossoms on the right. Also impressive is the power of water, i can feel the water droplets suspended in the air.
Have a nice day,
mirosu (5533) 2013-04-11 20:15
I was searching after NO 1 and 2. Now I've discovered this, No2, one. IMO almost the same quality as N1, but I still prefer No 1. I'm missing the bridge here. On the other side I like to see the wider part of the fall in its full beauty. Combination of this with No 1 would be almost perfect. Well done. Greetings, Miro
