Ice Falls in the East Columbia Gorge


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!

Recently I designed a book on Shutterfly with several images per page, an 8 x 8 inch hard bound coffee table style book.  I have sold approx. 50 copies to date.  Next I hope to come up with a variety of different books on specific areas or on subjects like the Lenticular clouds.
