My Trip To Palouse Falls

This furry little friend was hanging out near me without a fear in the world. I had some real Disney Princess vibes going                                        (Nikon d750; Tamron 150-600mm - 1/200s f/14)

Water has always had a draw on me. So naturally as soon as I moved to Washington state the first thing I did was google falls around me. It wasn't long before I learned about Palouse Falls and I knew I had to see it for myself. Rushing water, the roar, it reminds me how small and frail we are on this Earth. A wake up call like that is much invited sometimes.

I was born and raised in Deep South Texas and seeing something like this is a rare sight. The falls truly make me feel at peace. (Nikon 24-120mm @52mm 1/4sec; f/20)

Before reaching the falls, however, I had to drive through some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. Being up before sunrise gave me the chance to catch this amazing sunrise picture.

Sun rise colors are something else in this state. I have only been in this state a few months and already I'm in love. (Nikon 24-120mm (24mm) 1/125sec; f/9)

The golden hour also gave me some wonderful lighting (as it often does). (Nikon 24-120mm (24mm) 1/250sec; f/8)

While I was looking to get a good picture of the falls while there, I was actually hoping to finally get down to the base of the falls , and get my Husky pup some exercise.

Being one of the first people there I was able to snap a few good pictures of some little fur balls while there. Of course my little husky had to sit this part out. She has other intentions for the little ones.

It's nice to be able to enjoy the view from your front porch. (Tamron 600mm, 1/160sec; f/7 .1)

After getting my animal time with mother nature I had to get out of my little hide out and start the hiking to my ultimate goal. I had every intention to document my hike down the long trail to my goal but my lovely pup decided to help me clean my camera by knocking it into the river! Still love her!

Directly next to the falls you can find these gorgeous stones reaching towards the sky. (Nikon 24mm 1/160sec; f/8)

Some how my camera was still turning on but was being very spotty and the screen was simply not turning on at all. Luckily I was able to get the one shot I needed; I wasn't able to review it so all I could do was hope that my camera was actually saving the pictures I was taking. The machine gods were on my side for this one.

 One last picture of my little exploration friend. (Tamron 600mm, 1/200sec; f/8)
