Torc Waterfall Killarney National Park

I arrived home late last night from Ireland after a long flight. Today in between processing backed up mail and laundry I am getting back to processing a few more images from my tour with Peter Cox, John Barclay and Dan Sniffin. It all seems like a blur now, but Day 5 of the tour we were in Killarney. We made a visit that morning to the Torc Waterfall, where we first encountered the Midges. They were annoying, I put my gloves on and pulled my raincoat over my head while making these waterfall images..all the while batting away Midges from my face and lens!
The forest was thick and beautiful with moss laden trees which provided an opportunity to make an in camera multiple exposure of the trees. After shooting the distant shot of the waterfall I tried to zoom in and pick out parts that I found interesting. Students always ask me what shutter speed is best for waterfalls but it really depends on the light in the scene the speed at which the water is flowing and how you want to render the image. These waterfall shots were all made at f-16 at 1/40 sec. and processed in Photoshop.
f16 1/40sec...

Here is the forest shot straight on before I made the multiple exposure of the scene.
