Madison Indiana Photography

“Ringwald Falls”

This is a falls someone told me about that is located on private property, it doesn’t have a name, so I named it after the women who told me about the location. The falls stands about 40 feet and is one of the only cascade type of falls that dot our county, I have another shot of this with a wider view of the surroundings but there was so much garbage laying around I did not want it included in the image.

I shot this one with my 17-55 @ 34mm, f/8 at 2.5 seconds with a iso of 160, I also used a polarizing filter for this one.

  1. I like the symmetrical construction of this photo. It makes me think about my shower and how much I would love a shower head that was this forceful.

  21. On private property? Talk about perks!
    Your water images are show-stoppers, Bernie. I haven’t met one I didn’t instantly like. It’s as if you’ve slowed down the flow–really beautiful!

  30. Wow ! This picture is really great ! I am impressed by its quality I was wondering what you would advise me in terms of photo sharing service for those kind of photographs,
    Have you heard about the photo sharing Joomeo ( or any other alternative to Flickr ? What about Smugsmug? Thanks for your help

  32. Brings back memories. The creek originated on our old farm. We used to climb up the side of the falls, but there were alot of snakes around there. Nice picture.
