Finally fall in the Cascades
Posted By: scole, 10-20-2009, 09:57 PM

I mentioned in my last post that I returned to the Beckler and North Fork Skykomish River Valleys the following day to capture the fall color that's really popping out. A lot of portrait compositions. Hmm...

1. Fall color reflections on the Beckler River

2. Fire Water


4. Vine Maple

5. Yet more...

6. Rapid River

7. More Vine Maple

8. Canopy of Fall above Forest Service Road 63

9. North Fork Skykomish River

10. North Fork Skykomish River

11. North Fork Skykomish River

12. Forest Mist

If that wasn't good enough for me, I also got about a half dozen nice photos of a Dipper splashing around in the river which was pretty cool.

Thanks for looking...

Awesome, must get out with the camera this weekend before some autumn storm steel all the colors from the trees!

#3 is almost surreal with those colored blurred reflections. Amazing...

#9 should be a poster hanging on the wall!

Thanks for all the positive comments!

While I obviously have to do some of the work, I'm very blessed to live in an area that's so diverse and rich for photo opportunities throughout the year. I also had no set agenda on this day so I was really able to get into it and just feel things out without any pressure.

I might head back this weekend again since there were whole areas that I never got to.

Very very nice... I can't pick a favorite. I love the fall colors in the Cascades - I was there last year, and the vine maple were spectacular.
