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!
Thanks for your visit, and remember to check out my calendars and books and pass them on via Facebook and other social media, help me spread the word!

My mother taught me to love the world around me… and if I can help others to see with new eyes by showing that beauty through photography. I have accomplished my hearts goal . Husum, WA is my childhood home and I consider home to be anywhere from Mount Adams to the Columbia River. I give thanks to my parents for their love for Nature and God.
My work can be found online in full on Flickr, and while I am not set up to sell on that site, if you find a print of any size or style you wish to inquire about simply email me and I can send you a price list of prints by themselves or framed or mounted on foam core, gallery wraps, and standouts. I also license my photos for use in magazines, travel brochures and for web site use, and have been published several times. During the summer I am often at Saturday Market in Trout Lake or Hood River with my Note Cards and Prints
You can also find me on Google as Darlisa Black,
and on Facebook as Starlisa Black Photography

I had hoped to head up the South side of the Gorge, but never made it. Beautiful photography!
I had intended to leave early in the day and head DOWN the south side of the Gorge, but never made that either! lol, sometimes life throws us curve balls. I have been seeing some amazing Gorge ice waterfalls in my friends photos.
Well maybe I will venture up there before it moderates or wait until the next Arctic Blast Calamity Alert.
I suspect it might still last a few days!
Love that first shot!
oh thank you David for taking time to comment! Sometimes I get so caught up in a bunch of shots I lose perspective on which one really might grab people…
