Unforgettable Fire by candacebartlett

Colorful Fall foliage in Washington State’s Eastern Cascade Foothills.
I haven’t been active with social media for the past couple of months due to preparing for my recent wedding that took place a little over a week ago. It was a beautiful, fairy tale kind of event and I’m super thankful for all of the kind wishes and messages from people.

About this image – While I have a pretty huge backlog that I still need to go through from the past Spring and Summer, I decided to reprocess this shot from a few years ago, taken while out exploring somewhere several miles down a long, rough dirt road. Autumn is my absolute favorite time of the year, and with the gorgeous cooler weather we have been having here for the past few weeks, and the Fall color already at peak in some areas, I felt inspired to revisit this personal favorite image, despite the fact that is was taken so long ago.

Thank you for taking a look. 🙂

Soaking It In by candacebartlett

I’m uploading this one again after having some issues with the sizing displaying correctly on here before. Thanks for the previous comments for those who left them and they were erased.
This past Spring has been eventful with regards to shooting waterfalls around the Pacific Northwest, and I’m finally getting around to processing a few of them. I haven’t been posting photos very much due to spending a lot of time lately preparing for my upcoming wedding in August. Here is an image taken a few weeks ago on a rainy, foggy day in Central Oregon. After seeing Rami Jabaji’s awesome take on this place (apparently him, Terence Lee and I were all in the same location that weekend without realizing it), I pondered whether or not I should even attempt to process mine, but I still decided to give it a go anyhow. If you haven’t already checked out his image of Sahalie Falls, then you definitely should!
I was lucky enough to have this entire area to myself on this particular evening and the conditions were more than accommodating for waterfall shooting. A light drizzle continued on throughout the evening and the misty, dreary sort of atmosphere added a nice touch to the beautiful area. And, In case you are wondering…yes, the water really is a lovely, striking blue-aqua color. As I sat there for a good couple of hours taking my surroundings in, I was thankful that I had made the last minute decision to head here, along with some other waterfalls in the Central Oregon area. It is definitely one of my new favorite waterfall destinations and it was a nice change from dealing with the crowds in the Gorge on the weekend.

As always, thanks for taking a look.
