New on 500px : Blue Palouse by ZackClothier by ZackClothier

On a recent trip to Oregon I made a stop at Palouse Falls in eastern Washington. The 198ft falls on the Palouse River is one of the most scenic waterfalls in the state.

For this shot I had my camera and tripod perched on the edge of the cliff a few hundred feet above the river’s canyon, in the dark, being extremely careful not to knock over the tripod or trip over a rock and end up down there myself!

~Palouse Falls Cloudless Sunrise~
I would have prefered a partly cloudy sunrise but I will take whatever I get from this beautiful landscape in Eastern Washington. Always different and always amazing.

View on black to see the shadow detail properly!

I was privy to this jaw-dropping display of light in Eastern Washington. I found this beautiful, lush patch of lupine. Pictured in the distance to the left are the rolling hills of the Palouse.

The day leading up to this was overcast and warm. There was a chance for thunderstorms, but they never developed There was a small crack under the horizon and all the dull gray. So there was hope. And sure enough, nature put on a beautiful show.

This scene was extremely difficult to photograph and process. The lupine were being thrashed around in nearly 25mph winds. To get as much in focus as I could, I focus stacked and used the sharper images. This was surely one of the more challenging focus blends I’ve done.

Thanks for looking.

Obligatory: Best viewed on black.

Another image from my nearly week-long trek along Eastern Oregon and Eastern Washington. This is Palouse falls in some desert canyon area.

I had the tripod on the edge of a cliff. For those who’ve shot here, you know someone could easily give you a little nudge, that’s all it would take, and you would be over the edge. And that would be all she wrote. So there’s a pretty clear danger of falling, when you set your tripod up on the edge of a cliff anyway.

I had this lady by me that didn’t really understand the idea of a personal bubble. She kept creeping closer and closer. Soon, her tripod leg was all the way under my tripod. I couldn’t even maneuver around my camera. I’m like, “lady, I don’t want to accidentally kick your tripod over that 100 foot cliff.” Even though, I secretly did.

A group of photographers were shooting this fall well before sunset. But as soon as the sun set, they decided, because there was no color at sunset, they would give up. Just because the sun has set, doesn’t mean the chance for color is gone! Probably half or more missed these great pinks that moved in for only couple minutes. Patience, people!

This is a blend of exposures and a stitch to show off that lovely sky.
