Crown waterfall-Spirit Falls by BogdanVasilic

“””This is a reprocessed file of Spirit Falls, that i’ve posted few days ago.
Something was really off with the waterfall it self,and looks like optics of the lens made some crazy distortion in upper part of the image so i had to warp it out to make the fall look more “straight”, slight crop after that and tad desaturation on the blues. “””

I would name and title this waterfall as the crown jewel of PNW. Crazy 700 ft hike down the goat paths and slippery mossy rocks get you to one of the greatest and not so crowded waterfalls in Pacific North West.
This is a Spirit falls on Washington side of the Gorge, taken in mid morning light at the peak of fall colors.
5 hrs of solitude and peace I had here, drinking my morning coffee, taking photos and so on for couple of hours.
I would love if you could VIEW IT ON BLACK background and explore these juicy shadows.
This is a single raw file, purposly left the highlights a little blown out to keep it as realistic as possible. Standard LR processing with Orton added in PS.
Thanks for stoping bye.

Sunrise Over Crater Lake by bxfoto

Thirty one minutes after 5:00 AM and the sun shoots its rays of life over the cold Wizard Island and the glassy crater lake.
