One of my very favorite waterfall shots, this was practically unplanned. The tall grandeur of Akaka Falls, loftier than a 40-story building (442 feet), rightfully commands attention. Yet with the afternoon sunlight blasting glare into my face just above the top of the east-facing cascade, I was experimenting with other compositions in the shadows, mainly to pass the time until the sun “set” behind the ledge. Fortuitously, the singular torrent temporarily split into two columns right before this brief time exposure, making the lower portion appear like ghostly legs, or ethereal plasma beams from some unseen UFO.
