Butte Creek Falls
If you are even in the vicinity of Salem or Portland, don't forget to drop by the tiny town of Scotts Mills en route to Abiqua Falls and Butte Creek Falls. The lighting that greeted me there was just glorious. Three shots blended to cover the dynamic range of the scene.
Picture perfect postcard!!
Heavenly. Thank you.
Absolutely wonderful capture. It reminds me of the beauty outweighed by the dismal in most everyday life.
beautiful shot, I love the lighting
I'm from the area and you have captured the beauty of the Pacific Northwest! Gorgeous~
stunning capture mate!
I think you should have used less off the fake sunrays .. doesn't look realistic at all
Cool .. .. i see i am wrong and i apologize ..
The video is very convincing .. the vapor from the waterfall creates a cool effect.
But you are right many people do deceive by creating sunrays with photoshop.
You are obviously not. Thank you for showing me the video.
It has been boggling my brain for a long time.
this is another amazing shot.so peaceful!
Beautiful work Dylan !
This is a stunning photo! Well done!
Ouaaaaaahhh. What a beautiful picture, with these sun rays that illuminate the waterfall and the whole scenery ! Congrats for this picture !
what a beautiful capture,........you hve created a stunning glow.......
... Fantastic. The sun-rays feel ethereal, such a wonderful scene
Stunning atmosphere and exposure.
we all need ready access to these scenes,
to remind us this is still a beautiful home.
Bold one! Impressive shot man!
Amazing photo, Dylan!!!! ... "...at the right time in the right place..."
Absolutely perfect! The sunrays and the whole scene is so... magical. I love the colors, sharpness and amount of details here. A masterpiece. Can i ask which lens did you used here?
thanks this was shot with a 16-35mm F2.8II
Dylan, please tell me all about that lens! It's the only one missing in my kit. I would love to purchase it but it is so expensive that I don't know if I can afford it.
BTW, this photo is beyond stunning!
the lens is fantastic but corner sharpness can be an issue out at 16mm.
Honestly, unless you need to F2.8 (we do for weddings and alot of night images) -the 17-40mm is just as good for traditional landscapes
Thank you for the reply.
I usually don't use wide angles in landscapes only. I photograph cars and architecture with wide angles because i love the distorted effect. Brings a punch to the photos.
And yes, something I shoot in dark places.... 2.8 would do wonders...
