Ruckel Creek exploration
Posted By: scole, 05-31-2009, 09:41 PM

The day after my trek up Dog Mountain, I decided on poking around Ruckel Creek after researching my options. Most people fixate on the many beautiful waterfalls in the area but I wanted to capture some images of the creeks (thanks in part to the work of some other regional photographers).

Sunny skies are great for wildflower photos but not so good for forest & stream scenes. Nonetheless, you take what you're given and make the best of it. I'd love to return on a cloudy or overcast day!

1. Lower Ruckel Creek falls (DA12-24mm)

2. Lower Ruckel Creek falls (DA55-300mm)

3. DA18-55mm

4. DA12-24mm (Stitched panorama)

Thanks for looking..

Nice, I think no 3 is a winner. no 1 is also very good.
composition on no 2 doesnt work as well for me and the last one looks strangely compressed, almost kind of a fisheye effect, and some blown out highlights sneaking in.

lovely lush greens overall

Real green peace... and your photos brought a bit of it to my mind. Like the 4th one best too.
