Ice Falls in the East Columbia Gorge

Ice_9518-1

Today I was able to get out and about for awhile with a friend locally, for a short time.  We decided to drive East of White Salmon to a small roadside falls near Rowland Lake to practice shooting iced up waterfalls.  It is so seldom I get the chance to shoot icicles that it always takes a little messing around with settings to look for the right ones!  I remembered that when shooting ice and snow it is best to actually over expose, while watching histograms closely to avoid bad blow out of the highlights.

A land of fairy castles and undersea bubbles greeted us up the Old Highway 8

Now you get to see the castles without getting cold!
