This was a fun little diversion on our trip to northwestern Colorado earlier this week.
Fish Creek Falls is right in Steamboat Springs and a short, easy hike from the trailhead. While figuring out our plan for the day, my wife mentioned she heard there was a cool waterfall nearby. She was definitely right!
At 280 feet tall it is big and throwing in the heavy runoff from snow melt, it was absolutely roaring.
Our mid-day visit wasn’t ideal in terms of photography with harsh light but I made the most of it by throwing on a Neutral Density (ND) filter and using a slow shutter speed. That allowed the “blurring” of the water as it rushed down the falls and the creek.
The scene was absolutely gorgeous – and loud – and we were happy to finally be back in the #mountains.
