Snoqualmie Falls 1
On cold, wet days, I don't usually expect to get good photos, or even want to take photos. Sometimes you just want to go somewhere to see something new as I did last week when visiting family in Seattle. When I arrived at Snoqualmie Falls, it was so foggy and misty that I couldn't even see the falls. I could hear it, and I knew it was physically less than 50 yards away. The sound was powerful, but I could see nothing. Then I noticed the fog clear slightly, and fog over again. I watched this happen over and over and started taking pictures. I had to work fast, wiping mist from my lens between shots, but the result was beautiful. It's great to see scenery in full, brilliant color, in bright or warm or naturally filtered lighting situations. But on this occasion, Nature was giving me a window to see something new. On this day, I was lucky to be at Snoqualmie Falls on a cold, wet, dark, and foggy day. Take a look at my Pacific Northwest gallery and other recent additions at Outdoorscenics.com.
