After visiting Willow Falls the other day, I drove north to Osceola, Wisconsin to photograph this waterfall near the St. Croix River. This is another very fun waterfall to visit, however it did involve going down several hundred stairs and then back up again. There were many people visiting this spot and several people were even playing in the waterfall. By using a long exposure time I was able to eliminate them from the image because they never held still long enough to become part of the image. There were a few small kids which were playing in the water that showed up as small blurs, but the spot healing brush in Photoshop took care of that easily enough.
