A Rainbow at Mesa Falls with Samantha Kennedy

Words by Samantha Kennedy - A Platypod Pro

"This image was taken during my visit to Mesa Falls in Idaho. This view is of the upper falls and they are part of the Caribou-Targhee National Forest."

"When I got to the location that I wanted to take my final capture from, I noticed there wasn't a great spot to set up my Platypod eXtreme. Luckily, I had brought the strap (from my Platypod Multi Accessory Kit) with me and I was able to attach it to the railing overlooking the falls, along with my Platyball Elite ballhead. Next, I set up my Nikon Z7ii with my 14-24mm f/2.8 at 20mm, using a 10 stop Cokin ND filter to slow my shutter. My goal was to smooth out the water coming over the falls.  My camera settings were ISO 31, 20mm, f/11 for 13 seconds."


"The drive to the falls was just as beautiful and I was thrilled to see (and capture) the rainbow within the falls."
