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.

I’m dedicating this one to someone I love dearly, her birthday is today. I have watched her body slowly betray her. I have felt the darkness slowly closing in. I’ve seen fleeting moments of fear and hopelessness.
But I’ve also been witness to an incredible display of bravery, tenacity and hardiness. The stubborn refusal to allow the hopelessness to take over. The light inside her has always stayed bright, despite adverse circumstances. This one is for her.
This is a scene that happened over Sparks Lake in Oregon. A long single lenticular cloud started to disperse right at sunset to create an array of stunning cloud structures. The side light from sunset brought incredible definition and depth to the sky. Had the sun set an hour earlier, this display wouldn’t have been nearly as good.

From the same roadtrip as my previous upload,I just love the way the sky&light changes in a matter of seconds 🙂
For the optimal experience, it may be preferable to view this with/on black background.
