Third pic. About this 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, only the roar of water could not being conveyed through…

Bonjour, cher Ike,
J'ai l'impression d'entendre le bruit du flot tumultueux de cette chute d'eau.
L'environnement est de toute beauté. On pourrait presque percevoir un arc en ciel !

Good capture of these attractive cascades. I like the contrast in light and shade either side of the falls and the sense of movement in the rushing waters.

The capture of the power of the waterfall is an asset to the composition. The trees are a natural frame to the waterfall. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.

C'est joli, lumineux et plein de fraîcheur, une cascade qui donne une attirance certaine, j'imagine le son agréable de l'eau, j'aime beaucoup, c'est très apaisant

mountains in the summer is something I´d like to experience myself someday.Great opportunity to get acquaint with the nature.And the nature we can admire on your image is fabulous.The rocky steep mountain and green,lush vegetation around make truly magnificent surrounding for the waterfall.Nicely captured with superb quality and also weather was on your side,so you could utilize it to bring out so lovely colors and contrast from this scene.

Watching this picture I seem to hear the thunderous roar of the crashing water.
The image exhales the freshness and the purity of nature.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ike. A rushing waterfall in a rocky bed, surrounded by forest. All this is reminiscent of the beautiful season of holidays, recreation, etc. The inclusion of the bridge railing into the overall composition is a good idea. Overall very nice.

I have witnessed this type of terrain & I can hear the roaring of the water fall - It looks like you were standing on a very old bridge - lovely natural colours of the vegetation.
Calming & relaxing image to look at!!
jemaflor (68943) 2013-03-11 1:05
Good pov on these waterfalls, nice light and trees around, tfs.
Royaldevon (17791) 2013-03-11 1:24
Good Morning Ike,
It is such a pity that we can't hear the associated rushing sounds from this cascading water; we can certainly imagine them!
I like how you have used the trees to anchor the f/g and to create a shady contrast with the light on the water and the light on the b/g vegetation.
It is interesting how attention moves from a horizontal to a vertical experience.
Have a lovely day,
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-03-11 6:41
An impressive cascade waterfall surrounded by the greens.The light all around gives a very specific and magic atmosphere. Great sense of height and depth.
Have a nice evening,
Nicou (97727) 2013-03-11 9:21
quelle cascade d'eau splendide au milieu de la belle végétation et ce débit d'eau important merveilleux.
Bravo et amitié

Water power is much more evident on this take than on previous; this impression is convied by the "crunched and carved" rock wall seen on right side, so beutifully-lit by direct sunlight for refreshing natural colors.
delpeoples (44960) 2013-03-12 1:28
Ciao dear Ike
I can almost hear the roar of the waterfall and feel the cooness of the water and trees. A lovely shot and a very evocative note. Nice spotting, what a treat to find this treasure by the side of the road.
chrisvek (5483) 2013-03-12 10:37
Very nice capture with awesome colors and splendid composition.Perfect contrasts and POV.Nice job!

Hi, Nice waterfall near the road. And lucky you to stop there. Wean I was in Norway, I saw many waterfalls but my husband never stopped by :(.

danos (74020) 2013-03-14 12:16
nice the view of the waterfall as penatrates this dense and beautiful forest.I like the brilliant light and colour management as the fascinating view.
adramad (27556) 2013-03-15 8:50
I thought I had no photo to comment, but this had happened to me.
Very beautiful scenery on these mountains full of trees, the image of that splendid mountain waterfall whose waters down fast by the uneven terrain.
Beautiful range of colors.
Optimum brightness and superb sharpness.
I wish you a good weekend.
kato (6777) 2013-03-16 2:25
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the great waterfall which raises a spray and falls between huge rocks. The green which surrounds a waterfall is also fresh and kind to eyes, too. And, the light is managed well by shadow/highlight.
eldancer1 (17064) 2013-03-19 7:39
I wish we have waterfalls in our areas but we have droughts that even Yosemite falls were dry during my visit. Nice capture of this roadside waterfall with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
mirosu (5533) 2013-04-11 20:06
Even that I still prefer No. 4, this is also well capture photo of small waterfall. I like the view up and also the nice green foliage around the water. Only small distraction, IMO, is the slightly over-exposed bottom part of the water (I'm not quite sure about it; don't be upset if I'm not right). All is nicely arranged in landscape format. Wish you a very nice day and relaxing weekend. Regards, Miro
