When a friend says they are going to be in town, and they want to know if I’m available, I say YES! I love having company. Especially when that company is a member of my online photography club and loves taking pictures of waterfalls. We spent 2 days photographing some of my favorite waterfalls. Sadly, the first day I made so many rookie mistakes I came away with only 1 useable shot. I’d arrived with a broken camera, a dying battery on my second camera, I cracked my polarizer filter and I left my back up battery in the car. It was an interesting day. But the weekend was saved when we went to Silver Falls. I’ve been wanting to do the full hike that goes by all 10 waterfalls for a long time. My friend Stephen was up for the 7 mile hike, so we left early in the morning to make sure we’d have plenty of time to explore. We saw several stunning waterfalls, but only managed to take photos of about 4. It had started raining, and half way through the hike, our gear was getting too wet. By the time we got back to the car the rain had soaked through my 4 layers of clothing. We spent an hour in the lodge warming up with some hot chocolate before heading back to civilization. Though I was cold and soaking wet, the day was worth it. I’ve never seen so much water. We’ve had record rainfall this past winter, but I had no idea how much until I saw the waterfalls. You know when the local person sees the waterfall and says “Wow” there is a lot of water.
