Triple Threat

    Newer Older

    Had some time off from work on Friday and decided to hit the gorge for a little waterfall fun and made the hike out to Triple Falls. It’s not a real difficult hike, but the embedded rocks in the trail seem to wear on my knees and ankles more then any other hike. I had not visited this falls in a few years, but wanted to come away with some different images, so I made my way down below to the base of the falls. I will say, standing in swiftly moving current with bellowing clouds of overspray/mist and being surrounded by the deep thundering sounds of powerful waterfall, is one of my absolute favorite things to do and always puts a huge smile on my face! The atmosphere was great, but fast moving clouds, sun breaks and the heavy mist made for a lot of lens wiping and patients, which I have very little, but loved every second of it!

    Happy Waterfall Wednesday!

      Wow. I love the dreaminess (is that a word?!) of the water. Like dry ice. I want to be this good

      Wonderful. The exposure here is superb. The water is smooth enough to be silky but short enough to convey an appropriate movement to the scene. I never tire of shots from the Gorge. I have to get back there at some point.

      Nice angle man. Haven't been there in a few myself, but I don't rember any easy way down to the base.

      Very cool! I've been at the base of Triple Falls myself. The waterflow wasn't quite as much as you had on this day, but it's a great view. Not a bad hike either. A bit wet though : )
