Some weeks ago, at the pretty cold& wet beginning of May we were enjoying some free days in the green area of Jura, located in Franche-Comté, France, close to the Swiss border. The weather was not very stable, but because of all the rain the vegetation was very luxious and the waterfalls really full...So it was time for waterfall-photography! On the way to the famous "Cascades du Hérisson" we encountered the cute cows giving the milk for my absolute favourite cheese: Comté! So the first pictures hows you the happy milk-makers grazing the yellow dandellions.
Few kilometers afterwads we arrived at the starting point for the walk around the seven waterfalls of Herisson, along the river Herisson. The path streches over 7,5 km and offers magnificent views over different small, big and bigger falls called names like "l Èventail" (Fan-65m), "Grand Saut" (The big Jump-60m), "Saut Girard" (The Jump of Girard-35m). Nico was really enjyoing himself and using his new tripod. Waterfalls offer great possibility for creative pictures with long shutter speed. In the pictures below we have used speed from 1/4s till 0.6s.
