Tamanawas Falls

My mom and I hiked up to Tamanawas Falls on the eastern side of Mt Hood a few weekends ago. Lemme tell ya, it was not an easy task to get any pictures of this waterfall. I was totally unable to get a slow shutter exposure because of how bright it was that day. Getting much closer than this vantage point proved impossible for photographing too because of the huge amount of mist that the falls puts off, which you can see to the right of the falls where the sun hits it. The water would just collect on your lens (but it was also a very welcome cool "shower" after hiking in that warm weather). Next time I will go on a cloudy day to avoid the overexposure that this photo suffers from and hope for a better shot. This one will do for now :)

This is a gorgeous shot of the waterfall. I love how the sunlight enhances the mist as it makes its way across the valley. Well done!

What a lovely shot. I don't see anything wrong with it, but I know the frustration of not capturing something the way it looks to the naked eye because of limitations of a camera. I have two lowly point and shoot cameras, and they just leave me wishing for better options. I can't wait to see a picture of the falls that satisfies you.
