McWay Falls, California | Michael Wriston

Can I call bullshit on this picture? Where are those falls going? I don't see any sort of pool or barely any (if any) run off.

You can, but I know for a fact Wriston only shoots analog. I guess it's just such a low-flow fall it doesn't pool up much before getting to the ocean?


[EDIT} Oops. Shouldn't have said anything. Apparently this was digital. No evidence of manipulation, though.

I don't know, even drips make an impact and indentations in rock. That's a full on waterfall in the sand. I am just trying to figure out where it's going. Maybe it's not going toward the ocean but under the rock instead.

My panoramic shot of the Seattle skyline I took with a point & shoot camera a couple of years ago.

Maybe it's low tide... and as the tide rises, the waterfall would drain directly into the ocean... ?

Could be that there isn't as much water as it looks like there is.  It could be all mist by the time it hits the sand.  There are some very high waterfalls that do that even with lots of water going over.

That's actually slightly more awesome than the picture in question. :)

Oh, the picture with the DC supervillians was by Alex Ross titled "Infinitely Evil". Here is his version of the superheroes.
Can you guess the title?
