Description Rainbow Falls is the highest water fall on the Middle Fork of the San Joaquin river.Plunging 101-feet down to the turbulent water below, the falls are aptly named for the many rainbows that appear in its mist throughout sunny summer days.Rainbow Falls is just south of Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth Lakes, California. The San Joaquin River runs south along the John Muir Trail that connects Mt Whitney and Yosemite Valley.The falls are a mile and a half past Devils Postpile National Monument upriver at Reds Meadow. Access to the canyon is on foot or by horse. Along the ridge of the waterfall are horse ties for pack horses.
Nate Siggard, Los Angeles Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement I'm an artist and designer in Los Angeles, California. I'd almost always rather be in the mountains or on the highway taking photos of the most beautiful places on Earth. I began taking photos when the first Nikon D100 was released, and I was hooked. Since then I have taken about 50,000 photos on my quest to document the world around me.
I primarily shoot HDR (High Dynamic Range) landscape photography and am beginning to shoot models. My process involves creating the HDR image by combining three bracketed photos into a single 32 bit picture. The picture is then tone-mapped to compress all the available light and color into an editable photo that is color corrected in Photoshop and adjusted in Lightroom.
I wrote an e-book to teach others how to make their own HDR photos. You can find out more about it by going to http://HowToTakeHDRPhotos.com and use the discount code: Imagekind for 50% off the sales price!
