Shadow Creek Falls

As I was hiking to Shadow Lake in the Ansel Adams Wilderness, I noticed a nice bit of cloud cover approaching. Being mid-day, I knew this was not the time to capture waterfalls in all their glory. Knowing a large cloud was about to block the direct light from the Sun, I scrambled down a ravine to a rocky outcropping, set up my camera on the tripod, and captured this shot of (what I call) Shadow Creek Falls. This falls is seldom photographed because of its difficult location, however I believe it to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Sierra.
