Show Your Snaps...September 3, 2012
Sep 4, 2012

We invite you again to show your own snapshots or even choice pictures. Remember it's all about the enjoyment of taking pictures regardless of what we have. We can learn from each other and it's fun to share too.

Last Saturday I decided to take a seven mile round trip hike along Eagle Creek. It's near Hood River, Oregon. Along this trail there are many sections that are extremely dangerous, where people have fallen off and been killed (see the internet for details). This is especially dangerous for photographers that aren't paying attention to exactly where they are going (which includes me), so I was very careful.

We will start a new thread for this every week now due to the popularity. I'll be sure to comment also to your images, if you choose to share. Thanks everyone for your participation.

Photo No. 1 - This photo was taken after I walked a mile or two towards my destination which was High Bridge. There was such nice sunny weather.

Photo No. 2 - At one point, I turned around and took this photo to show you all how dangerous it was in places. Sometimes it dropped straight down.

Photo No. 3 - In the middle section of the trip I stopped off at Metlako Falls. It was stunning to see, especially with the right light.

Photo No. 4 - This is High Bridge. You can see the sign noting it, as well as the mileage from the trailhead. I walked a little further from the Fish Hatchery, as parking was limited...so my one way trip was about 3.5 miles or maybe a little further than that.

Photo No. 5 - On the way back I decided to stop one more time at Metlako Falls. It was getting late and the sun was starting to set behind the mountains.

Photo No. 6 - As I walked back towards the trail near Metlako Falls, I saw these young ladies crossing the river. They were going to jump into the water from a ledge on the other side.

Photo No. 7 - The one on the left was more cautious and going more slowly. The rocks must have been slippery. You can see how dark it was by the setting that I was using. I took a chance that I had enough shutter speed. Fortunately, they were going slow.

Photo No. 8 - They climbed up about 30 feet.

Photo No. 9 - This was the ledge where they jumped off. Because it was getting so dark, I was unable to achieve enough shutter speed to capture them jumping.

Photo No. 10 - As I returned and got closer to the trailhead I turned around and took this photo. Being that it was getting so dark, I was glad to have been able to use these cameras that were adequate in low light conditions such as these. There are so many more pictures that I could have shown, but I try to keep them to 10 or less to satisfy Dpreview's requirements.
