New on 500px : Dark Divide by MichaelBollino by MichaelBollino

Between Mount Adams and Mount Saint Helens lies the Dark Divide, an area of dense forest and high ridges full of incredible creeks and waterfalls. The Dark Divide is the epicenter for mythology surrounding Big Foot. I couldn’t help feeling as though I had company while exploring this rarely shot area.

New on 500px : Hydrotopia by MichaelBollino by MichaelBollino

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.

This really needs to be viewed on black, so please click on the image.

Mount Baker glows in the Summer evening light. This was taken during an enjoyable week long trip last year with my boyfriend through the North Cascades in Washington State.

The title comes from a favorite quote of mine: “I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.” ~ Thoreau
