After shooting thousands of exposures at hundreds of waterfalls over the past year, here are my 10 favorite horizontal waterfall images of 2015.
If you missed my top 10 vertical waterfall images of 2015 you can see them HERE.
10. Pack Saddle Bridge, Somerset County, PA
I've been visiting this waterfall longer than any other (40-some years now), but it's still hard to tire of the combination of waterfalls on Brush Creek directly beneath the Pack Saddle Bridge. Beautiful any time of year, I shot this one in mid-May.
9. Ohiopyle Falls, Fayette County, PA
Another waterfall that I've been visiting for quite a while - this year was the first I've tried shooting it at sunrise. Very happy with the results on this day in early October.
8. Rosecrans Falls, Clinton County, PA
I've photographed this one many times, in all seasons. Thought this one from June 1st worked really well with the trees in both the foreground and background.
7. Little Four Mile Run, Leonard Harrison State Park, Tioga County, PA
Shot this one on a rainy solo hike down the Turkey Path last day of September. The autumn leaves were just starting to fall.
6. Fechter Run Falls, Fayette County, PA
Caught this seasonal tributary of Jonathan Run during the spring thaw in mid-March, flowing about as well as it ever does.
5. Bear Run Falls, Tioga County, PA
Shot this one in late June at Colton Point State Park, along one of the many tributary streams to Pine Creek in the PA Grand Canyon.
4. Muddy Creek Falls, Deep Creek, MD
This was my first trip to Muddy Creek Falls. Encountered a local fisherman while I was there who was kind enough to pose for this shot, to give a sense of scale to the scene.
3. Dry Run Falls, Sullivan County, PA
Shot this during my first visit to Dry Run Falls, at the end of October. Fall foliage was a little past prime, but still enough hanging around to make for a nice scene.
2. Upper Cascades, Meadow Run, Fayette County, PA
The spring thaw had Meadow Run at Ohiopyle State Park roaring on this morning in mid-March. I really like the contrast of the dark foreground and the raging whitewater.
1. Little Slate Run, Tioga County, PA
This shot sums up what I love about photographing waterfalls. Gorgeous remote scene, no trails, lots of flow and action in the falls themselves. For all of those reasons, my favorite horizontal shot of 2015.
