though eastern washington is mainly known as a desert/farmland..it does hold one of the most remarkable waterfalls in the state...Palouse Falls. the geology surrounding the falls is noteworthy on its own..to have such an amazing waterfall rushing through it just takes what was left of your breath from the mind boggling view!

Palouse Falls, Washtucna , WA

As always, fantastic!  
I tried to get to the Palouse this summer and never made it.  I'd really like to see the falls. This is a very nice capture.

Alas I never made it there.  I like how the "Sony" colors give this a different feeling than most images from this location, which feature the (perhaps too) vibrant greens surrounding the waterfall.

is definitely nice having that 4th color hit the sensor at times, though i trade it all in for some more dynamic range. (realizing the darkness in this one) but guess the blame would be more due to the cropped sensor then color. is time to go full frame soon..now the decision to stay with sony, go with canon or go against everything ive ever said about Nikon and go 800E which has been very tempting as of late.
thanks bud..you ever have thoughts of visiting the NW?

I have had the 800 since it came out, and it was a revelation.  One of my first "real" sessions with the camera was my daughter's college graduation.  Imagine LA in late May, blazing sun outside, diplomas handed out under a tent with open sides right near the the edge of the tent, I am shooting from the parent area inside the tent.  When I looked at the LCD preview my heart sank - just a black outline against a blazing bright background.  It took exactly 15 seconds to pull up the shadows and make the image good enough.  My jaw literally dropped.  I recently did a workshop with Marc Adamus, and he too switched from Canon to the D800 shortly after it came out.  His words were something to the effect of "The D800 is a love-hate relationship, but the DR is like nothing else out there and outweighs the numerous other relatively small shortcomings".  The "Before the storm" image I recently posted is a single exposure where I brought up the shadows easily.  "Echo 2" was another one very high contrast image that did not require bracketing.   As for coming back to the NW, it has only been a year since I have been gone and there is way too much to shoot in CA for the moment.  I live only two hours away from Anza Borrego, and looking at the topo maps and some of the satelite imagery I could easily see myself there at least as often as I used to go to Cape Kiwanda when I lived two hours away.

is going to be a tough decision, for me, between the d800 or an A99. am impressed with both their performances, main reason for sony would be because i rely alot on the flip out LCD for my shots but cant decide if that worth the exchange for less DR and file size.

thank you! :) made it just as the sun was setting so had to run to the obvious point, but was happy with the sunset since it'd been close to a decade of visiting where it hadnt been raining..kept going back though and believe its time for me to visit it again as well!

Some waterfalls look gentle, falling like silver rain. This one looks like it has the force of thunder as it falls!
