Cedar creek falls in the late afternoon. The foreground shows the pool of water with ripples and incredible golden reflections of the canyon walls.

At the End of the Waterfall | Cedar Creek Falls, Ramona

When I hiked out to Cedar Creek Falls, I initially thought I may have picked the wrong day. It was during spring break and there were quite a few people swimming when I arrived and then a large group of high school boys came a bit later. The boys were jumping in the water -- normally I would be annoyed but I noticed that the splashes caused the funnel shaped pattern of reflections and I took advantage of it for a foreground shot.

Note: the hike is 6 miles round-trip with about 1000' of elevation gain and no shade. It wasn't hot when I went so the hike wasn't bad but it can be brutal with high temperatures (people have been airlifted out).

About the Prints

Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:

24 x 36 inches

30 x 45 inches

40 x 60 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount


This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.

Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
