After a few attempts, and no real lighting of any significance, my photo buddy and I made the decision to stay after hours and work on a star lit shot for this location. While access to the spot is slightly off limits, just slightly, the photographs I've seen of the area, and especially here, were too tempting to pass up.
This image took many attempts to get "perfect" in post edit (obviously that is in the eye of the beholder) but with this one, I am quite pleased. I learned a lot about editing twilight shots from this photo and feel rather capable of attempting more in the future. A better camera and lens would be much more suitable for these types of shoots, but ultimately, I'm happy.
The entire area surround these falls is just breathtaking, however. My return trip to the park will strictly be on foot with my tent and pack. There is too much of the park that is missed with sticking around the heart of it.
