Day 47: Marble Falls

by John Nelson February. 16, 2010 2758 views

Marble Falls [en.wikipedia.org] is between Harrison and Jasper, Arkansas on scenic highway 7. The falls are really beautiful, though sitting on private property. They are only viewable from the road about 1/4 mile away. The marble near the area was used to help build the Washington Monument.

On a side note, during this shot I realized my 100-400mm lens is capable of f/38. That shot was terrible, but it's good to know!

Location: Marble City, Arkansas (formerly Dogpatch USA)
Camera: Canon Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS [the-digital-picture.com]

Scott: It's super addictive...glad you're liking it!

Brett: Yeah, the blue chromatic aberrations were pretty impressive at f/38. And my focus was way off, too so the picture was a total loss.

Djnana: I can't lie...I selfishly watch that list to see if my stuff gets on there. :)

Thanks all! I agree...leaves would change the scene dramatically, for the good and the worse. But we'll just find out when the winter dies.

That's an awesome location. It would be great to catch that same shot in the Spring & Fall.

Excellent shot, John. Couldn't see as much if the trees were leafed out, but that would be pretty in a different way. Spring's comin' . . .
