Winter Falls

Winter Falls

A long exposure image of upper Tumwater Falls near the old Olympia Brewery on a cold winter day

As I was doing a little Lightroom catalog maintenance at the very end of 2014 one thing really jumped out at me, I didn’t actually shoot all that much in 2014.  While I don’t like making resolutions that I am going to just break anyway, I did tell myself that I needed to get out more in 2015 and make more images.  I took the opportunity to do just that on New Years Day by making a short trip down to Tumwater Falls Park and making this image of the upper falls which I am calling Winter Falls.

Tumwater Falls Park, which is in the shadow of the old Olympia Brewery is sort of a “goto” place when I want to get and and shoot some, it is only a few miles from the house, there is ample parking and well maintained trails all through the small urban park.  One thing I hadn’t done though is do any real shooting when there are ice on the falls.  I am really glad that I braved the cold to head out and make this image, I am very pleased with the outcome.

This is one of those images that I hope you will click on to see the larger version, IMO, it really displays better a bit larger.

Regardless of how your 2014 was, here’s to all of us having a great 2015 and Happy New Year everyone.
