For the entire Fall and Winter seasons I will share gorgeous landscape, nature, rivers, lakes, and mountain photographs from the Pacific Northwest. I hope you will enjoy the next 12 to 15 posts.
This particular image was captured recently from my trip to Skykomish, Washington and features the beautiful and fast flowing Tye River that runs from near Stevens Pass in the Cascade Mountains to the Puget Sound. Most of the river is within the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The river follows US HWY 2 and is named after William Francis Tye, a surveyor for the Great Northern Railway. Today the rail road tracks are owned by BNSF.
I capture this image from a narrow one lane bridge that crosses from the main road into the National Forest area with 3 frames, each at 2 stops apart. This area is mostly desolate, with old growth forests, and no noise except the river water rushing past. Finally, I merged my frames together, blended, smushed, tweaked, and created the final image above.
If you love the Pacific Northwest and colorful yet unique landscapes, please stop by my Northwest Landscapes Gallery and purchase Tye River Heaven for your fine art collection. My prints start at $23 and come with a 30-day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied.
Thank you for seeing my photography.
