Canyon waterfall

That's a little canyon close to my home i discovered 4 years ago and never returned since.
Sunday evening the rain was nice enough to stop a little bit and i thought the waterfall could be nice. The path was barely a track in the mud, the forest looked like a jungle but the waterfall was really not impressive ...

Diomaz river runs in the mountains around Bellevaux above Lake Vallon.
I returned there last week, two years after my first visit and was really amazed by the beautiful autumn colors. I spent the afternoon walking around the lake and in the forest and ended at night with the only light of my headlamp.
More images to come soon.

Autumn along Flumen river

Flumen is a short river running through Haut Jura Natural Park just near Saint Claude.
I went there for the first time past week between two rainy days. The place was dark and wet, the waterfalls were impressives with really strong noise and spray.

Eventail waterfall on Hérisson river

Eventail waterfall is probably the most famous of all the Hérisson waterfalls for two reasons : It's the tallest fall and access is really easy (a few minutes walk on a good path).

Grand Saut waterfall on river Hérisson

Hérisson waterfalls is the name of a famous french waterfalls range in Jura department (see more here).
I returned there a few days ago for the first time since my first visit in 2011 and i was glad to find a decent water level in the river and a kind freshness in the valley.

Grand Saut is not the most well known of all the waterfalls on the river (probably because one has to leave the main path) but i find the place really beautiful.

Note :
All my images about these waterfalls are here.

Albarine river runs through Ain department and just after Hauteville Lompnès jumps a cliff of more than 100 meters. It's Charabotte waterfall which is the highest in the department.

I went there two days ago for a first visit of the waterfall and the lower valley. All the images were posted yesterday on my website, you can have a look here.

Horse Tail waterall in Haut Jura Natural Park

Horse Tail waterfall, aka cascade de la Queue de Cheval is one of the highest in Haut Jura Natural Park and the image above only shows the lower part.
I went the for a first visit yesterday but i was a little disppointed because despite the big rains we had recently, water level was really low and the fall not impressive.

An image from about one year ago of this beautiful waterfall on Bronze river.

I returned there some weeks ago after a few days of storms and strong rain, the waterfall was unrecongnizable and looked like small Niagara falls.

Exploring Fornant river at spring

Springtime waterfall in Fornant river
Springtime waterfall in Fornant river

 

Rain had a short break yesterday. I decided to spend the afternoon with an explorative walk of the lower part of Fornant river.
My first idea was to go to its junction with the Usses river in Frangy.

Walking the forest path overhanging the river, i first made a few stops to make some images of all these lush greens. With all the recent springtime rains, every forest here looks to be a tropical one.
Then i just had to go on a little more to discover a kind of deep and green canyon were the river was running tumultuously.
The point of view "from above" was not very interesting so i started to search one way to reach the river. I finally found one scary but direct access to the other end of the canyon. The place was green wet and wild and filled with the noise of this small but powerful waterfall.

Long exposure around Pain de Sucre waterfall

Long exposure image around Pain de Sucre waterfall
Pain de Sucre waterfall on Vézéronce river

 

Still posting images from my last outing to this waterfall. This one was done in the very late afternoon but i needed my Hoya ND 400 filter to get a long enough exposure for this effect on the "lake".

As we have an awful weather almost every day, i spend a lot of time browsing the net and looking at maps, searching for some interesting places to photograph and i found yesterday another waterfall named Pain de Sucre in Ain department. Actually, like Jura, this department really has many and many rivers and falls and is a very good photographic destination at spring and autumn.

Pain de Sucre waterfall on Vézéronce river

Pain de Sucre waterfall on Vézéronce river

 

An image from yesterday while i was exploring Vézéronce river near Surjoux in Ain department.

This river is a small one with just a few kilometers long but goes to the Rhône which is one of the main rivers in France (it starts in Switzerland and finishes the mediterranean sea)

This waterfall is just a few hundreds meters far from the junction between the two rivers. Access is really short and easy and i guess it's a famous place for family walks.

I know there is at least one more fall above this one but i couldn't find any path through the cliffs. I asked to someone living just near. He answered that he wasn't sure about the path and that it should be dangerous.
I think i need to have a closer look to my map.
