[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Snoqualmie Falls is a 268 ft (82 m) waterfall on the Snoqualmie River between Snoqualmie and Fall City, Washington, USA. It is one of Washington's most popular scenic attractions, but is perhaps best known internationally for its appearance in the cult television series Twin Peaks.

Here is my photo of the Falls.

Most of the river is diverted into the power plants, but at times the river is high enough to flow across the entire precipice, which creates an almost blinding spray. High water occurs following a period of heavy rains or snow followed by warm rainy weather. This can occur during the rainy season which lasts from November through March. During high water, the falls take on a curtain form.

Hallo Michael, Welcom to tn, I'ts a beautiful landscape shot , good compositie colours and details , Greetings teunie .

Hi dear Michael ,
very nice shot. romantic .
i like it so much.
thanks for sharing

Hi Michael,
Welcome to TrekNature. You started of beautifully, with a photo with a great mood. I've seen this area in summer, but the subtle colors of fall are so much more beautiful.
Next time do include a note with your photo since not everybody knows where this is and that there is a stunning falls nearby. Actaully a note is mandatory.

Welcome, Michael. Wonderful shot, too. Great misty image here, almost surreal. With fog you want to have a good range of clouds to show off the fog to best effect and I think you've done that here. I am not sure if I like it with the fg to show the reality of the scene or if it would be better as cropped to just feel atmospheric. Truth is, they both probably work. I've posted a WS as an idea.

This is a very beatifull picture. It almost looks like a painting. I like the fog around the trees. Though I think I would have cropped the lower branches as they are a little distracting. Just my opinion.

TFS and well done !

Hi Michael,
Mysterious landscape, might be the land of Elves and gnomes.
Very good composition with the river and shrubs in the front.
Best regards

Hi Michael and welcome to TN. There is a growing contingent of Pacific Northwesterners on TN. We need to organize a convention!! I live in Salem OR.

This is a nice foggy shot. I'm glad you included the sharp foreground weeds etc. they add depth to the image. The soft color palette is really nice.

Hello Michael,
Superb is the word for such kind of photography. I appreciate the landscape & also sense the mystique arena all around me after seeing it. TFS this great work.
