p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Franklin Falls, WA


This was my first time visiting this falls. It was an overcast drizzly day. The water was low so standing in it with hiking boots was no problem.The low water allowed the colorful rocks to show through.

The first is the overall look of the falls. If you go too wide, you'll pick up an overpass section of I-90 to the left.

The second, from the side of the falls, was a little challenging. I had to sorta tuck myself in behind the rock wall on the right to avoid the mist. I still had to clean up some of the drops that made it to my lens. Just above the fall color is the I-90 overpass section.

As always, I appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks

JBR

Hi, John. Really like both of these compositions. Your perspective in the first is complemented very nicely by the colorful rocks in the lower third. The draping green foliage on the left of the falls follows the same flow as the falls. Excellent shot. I also like your perpective in the second. Very nicely framed by the rocks in the foreground. The fall colors in the background make it complete. Well done.

Cheers,
Ed

Excellent images, John- both of them.
I sorta wish I didn't know about all the man-made stuff so close to this lovely waterfall .

Thanks guys!

I appreciate you looking and your kind words. I'm glad you like them.

Hey Charlie,

Maybe I shared too much? Sorry about that.

Though your comment does spark a thought in me about how much we see in the landscape forum that has nearby man made stuff right next to the scene.

John,
These are real nice for the weather we had. Any way to get to the other side to take the freeway out?

John -

Nice couple of images. Nice to see some local landscape guys! All us Seattle area landscape photogs need to get together somehow and share images.

Franklin falls doesn't look like that right now - likely it's much much lighter in color . . .

Hi John,

I like the detail and color in the rocks as well as the overall contrast in #1 very much. #2 has good water movement but for me the rocks are somewhat less compelling than in #1.

Franklin is a nice little waterfall, especially in late summer or fall, when the flow is lower and you can get down into the basin without getting soaked! it's worth a scramble to get up onto the ledge on the rocks on the "far" side of the stream... gives you a different perspective on the falls...

Very lovely location and I appreciate the verbal description of the things outside the photo too.
