These shots didn’t make it into our earlier photo gallery, Spectacular waterfalls of the world.

BUT THEY’RE JUST AS EVOCATIVE — maybe more so, for the fact that many are in locations that are hard to get to and / or aren’t well known. Take this note from photographer Nicholas A. Tonelli, in reference to the shot of Silverthread Falls below:

This 80-foot cascade lies a short distance from Dingmans Falls, one of Pennsylvania’s highest falls. For some reason, the park service had closed the visitors’ center, as well as the trail leading to the falls, when I visited. I hiked the trail anyway, enjoying the absence of people. (The area gets crowded with tourists.)

For the other featured photographers who weren’t as forthcoming, it’s fun to imagine what was involved in accessing the more remote falls in this list…and what would be involved in getting there myself.
