05/08/13 Featured Arkansas Photography–Cossatot Falls State Park near Mena Arkansas
Taken with a Canon 1ds-MKII, Zork adapter, 35mm Pentax FA lens, F11, iso 100 for approximately 1 second. The Cossatot River is one of the great scenic spots in the southwestern corner of Arkansas. The Cossatot runs due south and eventually creates Lake Greason. From there is continues to run into Millwood lake, one of the largest impoundments in the southwestern part of the state. This photograph was taken much further upstream in the area known as the six falls. Cossatot Falls is unique to Arkansas rivers as here you will find 6 distinctly different rapids that have cut through the sandstone ridges in different places. Each spot has a unique name, BMF, and the Washing Machine are two of the most famous. This photography is looking back upstream from BMF and features 3 of the falls. I took this shot with a Canon digital camera, with a Zork adapter that allows you to to 3 separate portrait frames as stitches. I then will combine the 3 frames into 1 landscape image. You gain a tremendous amount of resolution by shooting in this format.
