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.

New on 500px : A Stream of Green by frazierphotography by frazierphotography

A small mossy stream winds through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. After living on the west coast for a while now, I was amazed at how green and full of life everything was.

Mossy Grotto Falls · Ruckel Creek · Columbia River Gorge · Bonneville · Oregon · USA

Exceptionally low flow on Ruckel Creek brought a rare opportunity for a long-coveted reflection shot of the falls, lending added serenity to the verdant glen of Mossy Grotto Falls.

Horsetail Falls Trail #438 · Columbia River Gorge · Dodson · Oregon · USA

Pacific forest moss- and licorice fern-flocked red alder flanking the zigzagging trail to Ponytail Falls seem to clamber relentlessly upwards in their determined quest for sunlight, raked even as they may be in the throes of a slow but graceful death.

Parallels in my line of work as a palliative care and hospice physician? Yeah, you might say that.

New on 500px : Panther Creek Falls by Jonkmanphotography by Jonkmanphotography

A day of paradise at panther creek! My friend Ray Green heard about this waterfall a couple of weeks ago and this was my first trip out here. After getting to photograph these amazing falls I’m not sure whats more impressive the waterfall or the fact that I made it down the treacherous ravine without killing myself! Hope you all enjoy all the torture I put myself through to get these photos for your viewing pleasure.

In the thick of spring, this trail is as lush and verdant as it gets, but on this late-March day the buds and sprouts were just barely rousing from their winter torpor–though a few modest flourishes of lavender oaks toothwort and yellow deep woods violet brought some refreshing color to the journey. Sparse foliage and harsh sunlight made photographing the creek’s namesake falls an unworthy pursuit, so I spent some time downstream studying the picturesque outflow and waited for some high clouds to diffuse the sunlight before pulling the trigger on this charming little stretch of meander.
