This is a closeup of the waterfall from yesterday,the High Falls of the Baptism River. This picture was an attempt to emulate Ansel Adams, as I deliberately exposed the picture to put the water in Zone 7, and converted it to monochrome. I also went for as quick of an exposure as I could manage. Not hard, since it was a bright and sunny day.

I used my nifty fifty (which is more like 85 with an APS-C sensor)

Exposure1/3200 sec
Aperturef/2.8
Focal Length50 mm
