I love the relaxing sound that is made when tempting cool water pours down in any of a million, small, nameless creeks in the Cascades. This spraying fountain is up the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, outside of North Bend, Washington.

Born and raised in the logging town of Snoqualmie, Washington (the logging days in Snoqualmie are mostly in the past now). I currently reside in Issaquah, Washington. My Canon Rebel 450D was a Christmas gift that has kept on giving me hours and hours of pleasure. I recently aquired a Canon 5D Mark II and I am now learning to use this awesome instument. I hope you enjoy these pictures half as much as I enjoyed capturing them!
