Photography and photojournalism in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest

Panther Creek, Skamania County, Washington

The light was very strange this morning when the thunderstorm passed overhead. The subsequent lightning also cut short the visit I was taking to Panther Creek Falls, in southwest Washington, with another photographer friend. We decided we weren’t going to risk being electrocuted standing exposed at the bottom of the 130-foot waterfall. Before we fled the scene for the relative safety of Oregon and our side of the Columbia River Gorge, we captured a few images of upper Panther Creek as it appears just a few meters from the edge of a part of the waterfall. As you can see, the bizarre light makes things appear almost …dirty? (Nikon D300S, Nikkor 20-35mm f/2.8 lens at 20mm, f/4, 0.4 second exposure at ISO 200)
