Located in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Panther Creek Falls is one of my favorite waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest. This is the view from the base, which requires a bit of effort to reach. You either have to scramble down a rock face or slide down a very steep boot path. Then you have to deal with an enormous amount of spray from the waterfall. But the results are worth the effort.
NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW
is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.(Nikon D90, Tokina 11-16 lens, circular polarizer, f/22, 1/2.5 seconds, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod, and lots of lens paper!)
Here is the view from above:
Falls Creek Falls, another spectacular waterfall, is not far away:
