Classic Punchbowl

The originality of this shot ranks right up there with my recent shot of Multnomah Falls but, like her big sister down the road, Punchbowl Falls is undoubtedly one of Oregon's gems. I didn't set out to just take the usual comp but by the time I waded out to the middle of the creek to get into position my feet and lower legs were so numb I felt like I was going to fall over. I know I sound like a wimp but OUCH that was some cold water! Anyway, as I stood out there freezing my creativity waned precipitously and, well, here ya' go!

 

Let me know what you think about this one. I'm not 100% on my processing, the shadows may be too dark. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

 

This one looks especially nice Large On Black
