The Show by LAlight The Show by LAlight
The Pacific Northwest showed her true colors during my most recent visit, with nearly constant rain, wind, and fog. Shooting in this much rain (as well as spray from the massive falls) was definitely a challenge, as keeping the lens dry was nearly impossible! Definitely one of my favorite spots in WA so far...the photos just don't even begin to do it justice.

dont use this word often, but it is perfect here! am just flabbergasted by this shot, LeeAnne..definitely was tough shooting this with the downpour, dry filters were indeed impossible! such an inviting comp..the perfect angle to display the massiveness of this beauty, the details you captured in the water are immaculate..and love that lighting across the upper third of the image..stunning capture, sweetie..did this fall and me proud! :deviation:

:blush: Oh jeez...left me speechless! You have no idea how much it means to me to hear you say such kind things about some of your favorite places. Truly honored to have been there and shot such beautiful places with you! Thanks for everything, Addam, especially the inspiration. :hug:

I'm sure I'll feel the same when you finally shoot some of the places I've been a million times. You can repay the favor then. ;)

Fine shot! I have never heard of this waterfall... what a great name! I have added it to my must-visit list, which despite all my adventures never seems to get any shorter (sigh).

Thanks! It's an incredible sight in person, Greg, definitely a must visit. A bonus is if you visit in the winter, there are several other smaller (meaning narrower, not shorter!) falls before you even reach this one. The entire hike is absolutely GORGEOUS.
