A few miles south of Redstone, Colorado is a seasonal waterfall that flows for about three months every spring. It begins as a trickle in late March, but becomes a gusher when the spring melt is at its peak.

Alongside Highway 133, like Hayes Creek Falls about a mile north of it, this waterfall draws many tourists passing through the area.

My house is another few miles farther south, so I pass this waterfall every day. The wide variety of weather in the spring changes the scene so often, that I frequently stop to photograph it - even if I already have hundreds of photos from past years.

Last year I bought a neutral density filter for my camera, and use it to get long-exposure photos of the waterfall.

Here are three views of this scene, taken on three different days this past spring.
