The Oneonta Falls is accessed by hiking through a narrow slot canyon about a 1/4 mile from the ‘trailhead’. The hike involves climbing over a log jam and depending on the stream flow, wading through waist deep water. It’s a great adventure with a spectacular waterfall at the end of the canyon.
I placed the camera on a tripod, set the self timer, ran upstream and got into position for a self-portrait. Having a person in the scene helps to convey a sense of size to the canyon and falls. I’ll tell you, I had some anxious moments holding still for the 8 second exposure thinking about my camera perched in a precarious location in the middle of the creek.
