Waterfall - Panther Creek Falls by La-Vita-a-Bella Waterfall - Panther Creek Falls by La-Vita-a-Bella
Panther Creek Falls, located in Washington state.

This is the wider version that I promised you from when I posted this:


The one thing that a photographer hopes for when photographing waterfalls is a lack of sunshine. The sun creates such bright light on the water and it's difficult to get a good exposure. I heard the pitter-patter of rain all night as we slept inside our little SUV, so I was hopeful about ideal shooting conditions.

The next morning, when it started to get light outside, I peeked out the window and saw blue skies and panicked! "We gotta get down there to shoot NOW!"

We had parked at a campsite just down the road from the trail, so it only took a few minutes to be at the trail-head.

The waterfall is just a short walk from the road, so we were down to the view-point rather quickly. Of course, you can't get THIS shot from the viewpoint, so a scramble down a small cliff and then a shimmy out onto a wet/mossy log was required. Much to my delight, the blue skies disappeared and the clouds came back. It mostly only drizzled, so I didn't get too wet except for when I stood in the spray of the waterfall (which always takes my breath away!).
