Doane Falls

Doane’s Falls is a series of five waterfalls located in Royalston, Massachusetts along an 0.2-mile section of Lawrence Brook, a tributary of the Millers River. There is an extraordinary collection of photographs of the falls on Flickr. This one comes from Massachusetts resident Glen Taylor of Mountain View Photography.

Taylor captured the picture July 5, 2009 and writes:

“Can you believe it? I actually got outside with my camera today.

“My brother-in-law hadn’t been to Doane’s Falls before so we went out this morning. The water is quite high since it’s done nothing but rain for about a month. The stone bridge is just visible in the top right of the photo but you can’t see the first two drops from this angle. I like how the sun’s rays stretch through the scene.”

“We also visited another waterfall after this, so all-in-all, it was a great morning.”

From another adventure to Doane Falls, Glen Taylor writes, “Taken on a recent trip to Doane’s Falls in Royalston, MA. A friend of mine, planning a trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire, needed some advice on how to take waterfall shots where the water was silky smooth. I know this shot doesn’t have silky smooth water, but I was showing him the difference between a long exposure and a shorter exposure.” September 14, 2008.
