Opal Goodness

    Newer Older

    Went for a hike in the beautiful Opal Creek area yesterday and had paid attention to the weather forecast that called for high clouds in the afternoon. Well after hiking deep into the forest for a different waterfall, the sky was clear as can be with harsh direct light.... I waited for a couple hours for a weather change that was not happening... On the way back (me head-down pouting like a child) noticed one small cloud was in the sky making it's way into the direction of the sun. I was able to make it to this waterfall and had about 5 minutes where the lighting was far from perfect, but usable! Thank goodness for the little things!

      The whole series is amazing. The color of the water is like something you would see in the SW...and the light peeking behind. Divine.
