Snoqualmie Falls
by Winston Rockwell (squirl033) 
Canon EOS 5-D
Snoqualmie, Washington
United States of America

Photographer Notes:
Took a hike down the steep trail to the riverbed for this shot of the falls. It's 270 feet high.. 100 feet taller than Niagara... and when the river's running high with snow-melt like it is now, it's quite a sight. I'd never seen a photo of the falls with these rainbows, so of course, I had to capture the moment...

Great composition, Winston. Your hike sure paid off. I will probably have that Twin Peaks song in my head for a while.

A beautiful capture of a mighty rush of water coming down that huge drop with dynamic force... creating not only one but two rainbows. I am happy that you took the hike down to shoot it...congrats on a beautiful winning composition, Winston!
