I parked by the stream that led up to this waterfall & got in trouble because it was in a secure area… So, the next day, while waiting to go through the tunnel, I had only 40 minutes to hike up there, take pictures, and get back to the car. There are no trails, and I just had a feeling that it would make a great photo, so I just jumped in the stream and ran up it as fast as possible. I got my shot and ran back to the car just in time…. 30 seconds to spare!

I used a 50D and a 17-40L lens for this shot.

    I thought it was concrete for a moment! Really great shot!

  • thanks so much… No it was snow that hadn’t melted yet… the whole trip i tried hiking back there.. and i got soaked walking up the earlier part of the creek… I thought it was well worth it!!! although.. later that night i was shivering!!!
