One of the great things about photography is that you can keep returning to the same location but experience a whole different environment. Last week, I stopped by Deception Falls for some photos (http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=143795) but decided to return again since some of my photos had water/rain drops on the lens. One week later, I went back. The timing of this trip coincided with the peak of a heavy rain storm that brought some moderate flooding to the lowlands (and mountain streams). The sound and force of the water flow was awesome. I couldn't re-shoot any of my previous shots but that just opened the door to a whole new slew of opportunities. The best thing was being able to enjoy it in complete solitude. Over the hour and a half I was there, I only saw two others for a brief moment. By comparison, later on as I passed it again on my way home, a half dozen cars were now present in the area. Now the photos... #1 The Upper Falls in full force #2 Side Channel below the lower falls in full flow #3 Alternate view of #2... #4 Moss encrusted forest #5 Fallen leaves in a pool of rain water #6 Martin Creek and a bridge along the Old Cascade Highway Originally I tried to frame the photo to exclude the bridge but ended up liking it as part of the composition... Thanks!..
