ketchum creek falls

by dittto in water

a fall that is usually washed out by the sun during the many a times ive driven by while out on the north cascades highway in washington..with one opportunity last year where i messed up the settings :/ this time around, i got the settings right, but was after staying up all night capturing the stars and realized i had forgotten my CPL back in the car about 300 feet down of rock climbing! luckily it was early enough in the morning that not having the CPL didnt make me unhappy with the way it was captured..but third time will be the charm :D

    Whoa! Definitely worth the climble (yep, I make words up too! ) to get here..and don't think this is shabby at all for no CPL! Think you should be quite proud of what you have here, sweetie...just love the in-your-face comp as well! Fantastic work!

    Nice shot bud, definitely worth the climb. So do you free-climb up all that, or do you need some gear on the way up? Definitely looks like a hell of a place for rapelling.

      thanks, Jonathan! carrying all the camera equipment is enough for me..so all climbing i do is free climb..never too bad on the way up..is getting down that is the hard part! would definitely enjoy being able to just rappel my way down!

    how pristine this waterfall.... just feel the morningly fresh air filled with the droplets of the water pouring down so close..... i think you can enjoy your capture without the CPL ... no disturbing reflections and i truly love the texture of the water...
    is ketchum a name of the natives? It reminds me on places further north in southern parts of Alaska and BC..... the Tsimshiams.....

      thank you so much, Barbara! am pretty happy with it despite not using my usual tools :]
      i searched for quite awhile to find the reference to ketchum name with no results. there was a trapper in the late 1800s from idaho named david ketchum and these falls have also been referred to davis creek falls, but not sure if there is any relation :(
