Wahkeena Springs by greglief Wahkeena Springs by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery. Faves and comments are always appreciated! Also, I invite you to download this image to use as desktop wallpaper. Please respect my work by not printing, selling, or reposting it.

A steep hike leads away from the crowds of tourists, past beautiful Fairy Falls, and up to Wahkeena Springs, the source of Wahkeena Creek in Oregon's Columbia River Gorge. I never get tired of visiting this beautiful (and relatively quiet) place.

If you enjoy this photo, please take a few moments to visit my Waterscapes gallery.

(Technical Details: Nikon D70, Nikon 12-24 lens, Hoya circular polarizer, Manfrotto 190PROB tripod, f/11, 1/1.6 second.)

the colours are really intense, its just amazing, and it really seems to be a peaceful place. The angle is great, trees's roots give a movement to the picture!! i love it :)
Its just too sad, there is no details about the technical points like shutter speed and so on . But anyway i suppose great photographer have some secrets of fabrication ;)

If you do not already have one, you should invest in a circular polarizing filter. That will help a lot with your waterscapes by allowing you to do slower shutter speeds.

actually i have a ND filter but i suppose thats its not so good as a polarizing =) But is it the filter which gives you these amazing colours or do you saturate in Photoshop?

True... an ND filter helps slow the exposure, but a circular polarizer is often better for water. As to saturation, Nikon dSLRs include saturation settings. I keep mine at "Vivid", which definitely helps. But the colors are pretty incredible just to the naked eye.
