Second Trip to Albion Falls

Since searching Flickr four years ago for inspiration to clear a winter photographic creative block, and stumbling upon Albion Falls, I have longed to capture its beauty and power.  

In early September, I headed back to photograph the falls.   An early morning barely post-sunrise shoot posed challenging as I had to contend with a semi-nude glamour shoot with the model and photographer moving around the lower falls.  Thankfully, they were understanding and worked in collaboration to ensure everyone could walk away with the shots they were looking for. 

About Albion Falls

Albion Falls is a 19 m classical/cascade waterfall flowing down the Niagara Escarpment in Red Hill Valley, in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. With cascade falls the downpour is staggered into a series of steps causing water to “cascade”. The top of the falls are located on Mud Street. The lower-end of the falls can be found at the south-end of King’s Forest Park in lower Hamilton by following the Red Hill Creek south towards the Niagara Escarpment.  Albion Falls was once seriously considered as a possible source of water for Hamilton.
