I generally prefer my waterfalls with lots of water coming over them. Spring waterfalls as opposed to fall waterfalls. However, there are advantages, I’ve learned over the years, to seeing waterfalls in the fall. The reduced volume of water allows for an interest contrast of water against rock.

Oh, and yeah, I can take pictures like this. I am standing, ladies and gentlemen, on the precipice of the waterfall. Remember that triangular patch between the two “streams” in my last two pictures? Yeah, I am standing on that for this shot. With water levels relatively low, I was able to get to this spot.
