When we were walking along the North Rim Trail of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, somewhere between Lookout and Inspiration Point, we came across this small waterfall that came to life after it had been snowing and raining the entire day and the day before.
If anyone is interested, I took the picture handheld without a ND filter, with my Olymus OMD E-M10 (30mm,F/18, 1,6s, ISO 200). I was able to do so because in the afternoon the southrim is in the shade and pretty dark.

We went down Uncle Toms Trail, a very steep and long staircase and got rewarded with a spectacular view.
