A beautiful sunset at Trillium Lake, which is one of my favorite places to shoot.

After a 90 minute ride out to the lake on my motorcycle, I snapped this as my first exposure and then left 15 minutes later haha. Sometimes that's just how it goes though! If you're ever in Oregon/Washington and see someone speeding terribly on a black Triumph with a tripod towards a mountain or beautiful sunset, it's me...

An unbelievable display of light as the sun goes down at Tipsoo Lake, passing through clouds and fog, sending beams of light through the trees. The clouds provide a teasing view of Mt. Rainier in the distance.

I titled this "Fall, Fell, Fallen" because of the beautiful fall colors, I fell and banged my knee while shooting there (which still hurts at the time of posting this) and I hate having to keep photograph that fallen tree that I wish would finally just slip down all the way.

After a very stormy week, the infamous log jam of Oneonta Gorge (located in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon) dammed small gorge, resulting in water levels as high as the jam itself (about 8-10ft tall as opposed to a few feet with normal levels). As a result, the only option was to shoot from atop the jam down the narrow gorge, catching the light at the end where the falls are located, and all the water dripping down from above along the way!

I've visited Tipsoo Lake in the Mt. Rainier National Park multiple times now, and just about every time I get a scene like this. Although fog and dreary nights can be nice from time to time, I think I would prefer to have some decent sunsets and sunrises every now and again. Thankfully, I got a decent clearing the following morning and actually saw the mountain for once! A rare treat to enjoy considering this scene the night before.

The lower portion of Panther Creek Falls, located near the Columbia River Gorge on the Washington side. The upper portion of Panther Creek is by far the most popular, and for good reason, as it's beautiful in its own right. The lower portion, however, boasts a very different nature and provides incredible depth as water makes it way down the multiple platforms of the falls.
