The soggy Cascades
Posted By: scole, 10-18-2009, 08:36 PM

Despite the certain forecasts for rain in the Cascades, I foolishly set out for a hike. Forecasts were spot on with steady rain which soaked everything I had. I had to cut my hike short due to thunder & lightning so there isn't a cohesive theme to these photos (other than being taken today!).

#1 Quartz Creek in steady rain (DA 12-24)

2. Got the idea for this shot from a post on another forum last week. Shot taken from INSIDE a log (DA 12-24)

3. Talus slopes in fall color (4 shot pano) (DA 55-300)

4. Vine Maple fall color along Boulder Creek (DA 18-55)

5. Boulder Creek rapids (DA 18-55)

6. (DA 55-300)

7. (DA 55-300)

Thanks for looking..

Very sweet scenery.
Love the frame in a frame in #2.
#3 and 4 are great with the bold colour and complementary landscape.
#6 and 7 are mystical.
Well done.

The first and last are great! On the first, maybe cropping off the bottom a bit would shift the focal point to the river rather than the big rock.

Appreciate the feedback, Adam. You might be right about the rock minimizing the falls as a focal point in the photo. At the time, I wanted to frame things so that there would be interest from front to back. A balancing act for sure!..

Thanks for all the kind words. I definately made some lemonaide from lemons on this particular day. I'm a bit more excited by the photos I took the following day which I just finished post processing.

Should have a bunch of fall color shots to post in the next day or so..
