by dittto in water

one of the many waterfalls that you pass by while hiking up the perry creek canyon. out of the five or so times i have gone by this particular fall, have never been satisfied with the outcomes. had some nice fog benefit me on this trip however and think im finally suffice with a shot of pitchfork falls off the mountain loop highway, WA

pitchfork falls is two pseudo-seasonal streams that come together for the last 100 foot drop into perry creek. the falls, though pretty much not able to be measured accurately, are said to be around 800 ft from top to bottom, the prominent drop on the right in this shot is around 300 feet for a sense of scale :]

please dont use my art in any way without my permission..thank you :]

      My wife is horrified of heights (seriously she can't even watch Avatar with me) this would make her keel over, lol.

      lol..surprisingly enough i have a big phobia of heights as well! though the art takes over at times and ill find myself standing on the edge of some of these falls looking over..hasnt stopped me from watching avatar either ;)

      haha..will admit there was one time i said that! the aspect i dont understand is that i never get any shots from up there..guess i want to make sure i dont miss an opportunity!
      though the one time i did say that i did get a shot i was happy with..was this shot: http://shadowness.com/dittto/into-the-abyss which was taken from the top of this fall: http://shadowness.com/dittto/bolide
      never have my legs shaken so bad..and not sure if the dense fog and not being able to see in front of me helped or worsened the situation!

      Pardon the childish language, but holy crap dude! I'm not really scared of hiehgts but that looks crazy. The shot was worth it though, that was massively cool. I'd keep thinking I was just going to get swept over the edge, lol.

    aww.... just can smell the humidity ... earthen.... oh Addam... your work wonderfully talks of the power of nature.... its formation history and its awesome beauty .... a very energetic picture.....
    beautiful greens.... and like silver bonds the falls.... love the move in it.... oh and it makes me kind of homesick.... your photo reminds me strongly on the wild Oregons coastlines...

    Some delicious fog indeed!!!
    Have to admit that this is my first time seeing this one on the big screen..somehow slipped through while i was going back through my emails. What a brilliant shot, though. Kinda glad this one had the chance to hit me like this! What a perfect shot, the epitome of Washington, in my eyes. So gorgeous, hon!
