Yet another photo that has reached interestingness #1 from the Long Exposure pool!

If you browse the comments on this photo they tell you this photo is great but like many of the comment sections around Flickr the comments do not tell you why the image is great out side of it being beautiful. We all know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and in still photography ugly can even be interesting. So why odes this photo deserve the number one spot on interestingness? I would have to say it is because of the time of day and the subject of the image itself. The series of waterfalls is not a common sight to many people or to waterfall photos. Most of the time waterfalls are shown as one gushing torrent. However when a photographer is able to capture a series of waterfalls like the one that are depicted a above it is very special indeed. When you combine the subject with a sense of timing that enables you to give it a new and different view than it becomes interestingess #1.
