Falls Creek Falls · Falls Creek · Gifford Pinchot National Forest · Carson · Washington · USA

A rare view of the always awe-inspiring Falls Creek Falls from its egress through Volkswagen-sized boulders and snarls of downed trees downstream. My brotog TJ Thorne unwittingly provides some sense of scale here, standing smack-dab in the middle of the spray zone fronting the 60-foot-tall lowest of three tiers. He’s not just a fellow photographer–one of the hardest-working dudes I know–but a true friend, and our views on life are more often similar than not. I’m pretty sure I speak for both of us when I say that being out in nature, free from the confines of human constructs physical, political, and philosophical and well away from the business of bean-counting and bureaucratizing, is more than just a pastime for us: It’s a soul-fueling necessity. Here, the office walls are draped with lichen and mosses and ferns, the ceiling is limitless, and deadlines, discord, and derisiveness dissolve away in spring-fed streams.

It all started when I had this crazy-person idea to precariously lean over a large boulder in about a foot and a half of rapids. I continued the good ideas by setting up my tripod in a very questionably safe way. The tripod was basically submerged, so at that point it was more of a subpod. I had the camera a few inches from the water. Between each shot, it was necessary to wipe the lens front. I drenched all my microfiber cloths in a matter of minutes.

Ok, enough of my dramatics. I worked pretty hard to get a clean foreground composition here at the famous Proxy Falls.

Thanks for looking.

View on Black!

Palouse falls in Washinton, USA. I did a lot of research prior to heading here and the one thing that people kept saying was it is in the middle of no wear. Let me tell you it is. Your driving along following the signs to the falls through the middle of the desert and it got to the point I thought it was a joke and I was being lead to no wear! Then you find the park and see the stunning falls infront of you. It is truly a beautiful place.

Last week I was lucky enough to spend a very long and very eye opening day with Brian Kibbons exploring little visited locations in Washington State’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest. To say the least, it was the most excited I’ve felt about shooting waterfalls and creeks in a very long time. So much new ground to cover and explore. This image was taken in the most spectacular waterfall location I’ve visited and may surpass any location I’ve seen in the Columbia River Gorge. My mind was absolutely blown. Brian, with his photographic memory, drove us down seemingly endless miles of forest service roads, screeching to a halt when I saw a small pink ribbon tied to a tree. “This is our Spot.” We grabbed our bags and bushwhacked down a steep and burly hillside for a while before popping out just down stream from this falls. When I saw what we were heading for I just shook my head and started smiling. Can’t wait to get back into this area again.
