Yesterday, my daughters and I went to play in the water at Echo Cliff Park. Here is the cliff that gives the park it's name.
What is stumping me, and where I could use some advice, is this: How do I capture and convey exactly how big this cliff is? It's giant - and randomly in the middle of nowhere!
I can't move too far back because the creek is down about 10 feet from the surrounding ground level. When I get close enough to NOT get the opposite ledge in the shot, I cannot capture the entire cliff. If I move back enough to get the entire cliff, I capture the ledge on the opposite side of the creek as well as a lot of foliage and it loses it's intensity.
I tried to get this shot while there was a man sitting on the cliff to give it some proportion, but it's so large, you can barely see the guy...
There he is!
Here are a couple more tries:
My daughters are here as well as two adults climbing the side.
Ugh.... needs to be crisper!
I zoomed in on the girls a little here.
They look so tiny! One is almost 4 feet and the other is 4 1/2 feet.... getting so big so fast!
If you have any ideas for me, or suggestions, or whatever, please leave 'em in the comments below - and thanks!
