Alamere Falls Looking North

Alamere Falls Looking North

Alamere Falls Looking North, photo by Harold Davis. View this image larger.

Alamere Falls is sited dramatically, tumbling over a sheer cliff to the beach and ocean. My compositional problem was to show the waterfall in the context of the site: if you take a photo of Alamere Falls against the cliff, you don’t see the ocean or beach.

To solve this problem, in this photo I snuck up to one side of the falls, and got the waterfall and the curve of Point Reyes in one composition.

    Excellent photo composition and lighting! I enjoy hiking to Point Reyes Alamere Falls in the daylight. I’m very impressed with your dedication to wait until almost sunset for optimum lighting and then hiking out most of the way in the dark.
