As close as you can get. Fallingwater. Bear Run, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.

The public does not have access to the place where the most iconic picture of Fallingwater was taken. We have to make do with a spot a couple of hundred yards away. Not obvious from this picture are the dozen or more people between me and Fallingwater trying to take selfies with this in the background (why?).

The other issue is waiting for the tours to clear the terraces. I gave up on that one, but only after I got one picture with the lower terrace clear, but of course a bunch of people turned up on the next terrace …

Trying again invariably one of the selfie subjects would obstruct the view.

With a sturdy tripod I could have put together a multi-exposure shot removing the tours. Maybe that’s something to try when we go back.
