October 2003
State: Michigan
Location: Tahquamenon Falls State Park, on MI-123, 20 miles east of Paradise, 25 miles north of Newberry, on the east end of the U.P.
Height: 50
Crest: 200
Water Source: Tahquemenon River
Summary: This is the largest waterfall in Michigan, and in terms of volume it is in the top five for waterfalls east of the Mississipi. It is a bit out of the way. There are no other significant falls within a two hour drive, but the park offers lots of hiking and camping activities. If you happen to be circling Lake Superior visiting waterfalls (http://www.gowaterfalling.com/waterfalls/superiortour.shtml) , make sure to visit this one.

OK so she's nicer ,she's good looking, I think the guy must be loaded, I mean what else could it be, it sure as hell aint his sparkling personality or good looks.

I have some pictures somewhere of the falls.. but I plan to get some ND filters and go up there this summer and get some photos of the falls again.. Here we go I just found it. Notice how the water is stopped in the pictures above and this picture:

Now if you use an ND filter and/or circular polarizer you can do this:

That was from my recent trip to South Carolina and in the middle of the day in bright light (worst time to take pictures). So I figure if I go up north this summer I will get out there at sunrise and sunset and get some killer waterfall pics.
