Finally managed to get some properly exposed and focused shots! Yay!
This spillway isn’t even the big attraction at Victor Falls (that would be Victor Falls, of course), but from a photograph viewpoint, the way that the water fans out of the spillway is a really beautiful view. This was taken with the Sony Camera (my medium format is taking a break while I see what I can do with the Sony), a time exposure of 15 seconds using a neutral density filter. (ISO 100, f/8)
Long exposures like this capture the flow and shape of the water, but not the details.
There’s a lot of white water above the actual falls; in addition to the two spillways shown above (water redirected under roads), there is a small waterfall to the right and then the big Victor Falls further to the right. Here is a panorama of three wide-angle shots with the Sony, showing everything but the big waterfall.
And here is a shot of the big drop of Victor Falls - actually the least dramatic view at the site, as it is obscured by all kinds of negation and a steep ravine. I have yet to explore to see if I can get a better shot of the actual Victor Falls…there is private property to the right, but maybe there is a trail on the other side of the ravine.
The Sony surprised me with the quality of the photographs compared to the medium format camera; definitely excellent stuff for web posting, but I still prefer the increased dynamic range and detail in the medium format images for other uses (murals, prints).
