Hiking Photographs

I love to hike and love photography….what a perfect combo. I wanted to share some of the pictures from hikes this summer that just got uploaded into my gallery. All of these shots are from the North Bend, Washington area. For those of you unfamiliar with where that is, it is just east of Seattle in the Cascades. North Bend sits in a valley surrounded by mountains. There are a ton of well maintained trails to fit almost any level of difficulty for hikers. The pictures are pretty self-explanatory, but I would like to comment on one in particular….the waterfall. The waterfall shots are Twin Falls and are a relatively easy hike. The only issue is, yours truly struggles with heights and this first shot was actually taken from a bridge suspended over the top of the second shot looking up-stream. Sounds easy enough, but the bridge is suspended way (did I say WAY) above the waterfall and I was leaning over the rail to frame the shot. Heights aren’t so bad when you are staring through a view finder, but they do raise their ugly head when you are done with the shot and actually look at where you are….enough said…enjoy!!!

    Before I read the text, I was certain at least the first photo was Twin Falls. The waterfall is pretty distinctive, those two diagonal logs have been there forever, and the surrounding woods just look like Mount Baker / Snoqualmie National Forest.
