It’s been years since I last visited Rändåfallet and I’ve been thinking about doing it again… well, for years. A few days ago I was looking at my old Rändåfallet pictures and realised that I don’t actually have anything good from there, even if I’m sure I used to think otherwise. So now that I needed something easy and relaxing to do, it was the right place!
It is such a long time from my last visit that I wasn’t even working with (extreme) wideangles back then. 24mm was the widest I had, maybe that’s why the pictures don’t look good any more? Only one way to find out!
It didn’t start very promising, there was only a little water in the creek so the waterfalls were a bit on the thin side, and many falls were completely dry. Also the sun came out just when I got there so my good intentions were rapidly melting in the sun. I sat down on a cliff for fika and that’s all it took – by the time I had finished, I saw this big dark cloud looming behind the falls! I just got a few frames of the dark cloud while the sun was out, and then the sun disappeared and the dark cloud became a normal cloud and the rest of the day was just nice! I walked up and down and I actually went too far upstream while I was at it; I was wondering why the path was so faint… turns out that the fall that I remembered as the last good one had so little water in it that I didn’t recognise it, so I thought that I hadn’t reached the spot yet.
I spent almost four hours there, that’s how much I enjoyed shooting waterfalls again! I really need to shoot more waterfalls. Really. It seems to be the only thing that gets me excited about photography any more, having mostly been on snapshot mode the whole
