Photographer's Note

I'm not sure the name of these falls, although the locals call them Coyote falls, from the great-grand-daughter of the original water master in this area. Further down the river are the Upper Falls of the Provo River which are more well known. This is a short hike, 1/2 mile, down from the outlet of Trial Lake. This picture is taken at the point of confluence of the two rivers.

I photographed this after sundown in this location, which comes somewhat early in the day due to the high mountians to the west. Altitude here is about 9600 ft above sea level, and there are 12,000 ft mountains all around.

I exposed this using a polarizing filter to reduce light so that I could take a long expsoure, as I didn't have any other form of ND with me. Again I'm not sure if I like the idea of long exposures and cotton candy (did this for you Robert), but it seems most people like photos like that. I did make an exposure for myself at 1/15 of a second, but had someone enter the image on the left rock area and I just didn't feel like editing them out.
