When in the Black Forest, you can really picture Grimm’s fairy tales taking place. The dense woods and mountains are beautiful, but at times foreboding. The Triberg Waterfall is one of the highest in Germany. (The town claims it is the highest, but that is disputed). The waterfall cascades 163 meters down rocks on the Gutach River, not far from the center of town. This accessibility makes it one of the most visited attractions in Germany. I love waterfalls and enjoyed the day trip to see it. The fact my parents were visiting probably also make me recall the day fondly.
My Canon 600D was brand new for this trip. I like this picture, but I was not well acquainted with the functions of a DSLR when I took this. But practice makes perfect, right? I used a filter from the flickr online editor, as I did not have Lightroom at the time. I don’t think I would make this choice today, but I chose it because it best reflected the “fairy-tale” mood at the time.
