Hilton Falls is a rather pleasant conservation area a few miles inland from Oakville, featuring a number of nice and easy walks in the woods that cover that part of the Niagara Escarpment.

This picture is of the falls themselves, shot using a variable ND filter; timing was critical, to find a gap of several seconds when people weren’t clambering around or behind the water…!

In the Nineteenth Century there were sawmills here, but all that remains now are a few stones.

For those wondering, the precise 9.6 sec exposure was absolutely planned for to get the exact exposure required, and not under any circumstances the result of counting to ten under my breath before closing the shutter! 😉
