Sol Duc Falls

Posted: September 27, 2012 in HDR, Nikon D90, Washington

This spot is accessed by following the signs towards Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort. Instead of turning into the resort (which sounds much nicer than it actually is) you continue along the main road until it dead-ends into a large parking lot. The Sol Duc Falls Trailhead starts here, and it’s a short one-mile hike to the overlook pictured above.  The Sol Duc River starts in the Olympic Mountains and flows through the National Park until it eventually drains into the Pacific Ocean at La Push.

Technically speaking, it was pretty hard to get a nice sharp picture at the overlook, due to the optimum spot to shoot from being on a wooden bridge that vibrated as people walked across. Because I was using some neutral density filters to slow the shutter and blur the water, I had to wait for quite a while for the bridge to be absent of people.
