Photo Post 155: Coal Creek Falls, Bellevue, WA

Coal Creek


As I wrote before, I made a weekly habit of going out to an awesome hike or beautiful waterfalls around King County, Washington area almost every Sunday since last month.

I have visited ‘Twin Falls’, ‘Coal Creek Falls’, ‘Snoqualmie Falls’, ‘Discovery Park’ and ‘Kerry Park’. All amazing journeys, especially because of the photographs I took there. I have already share few on blog and will keep sharing more and more.

This one is from Coal Creek Falls. Small but beautiful fall just 5 minutes away from my house. Basically coal creek river flows there and there is a trail of 5 miles round-trip. Trail is almost flat for half the time and then it gets some good elevation. Overall an easy hike and waterfall at the end makes it special.

The orange part behind the fall looks really weird in real, because it’s just different from everything else in that area. When I took this photograph, it was the moment which makes a photographer think about composition. Even though it’s a fall and it looks beautiful, it is not structured nicely to create a standalone good photograph. A photographer has to think about getting proper other elements to complete a scene which may look pleasant to eyes. I tried composing differently and finally got it right. The mixer of fall, nice green plants and that trunk of a big tree on right side makes my photograph better now 🙂

Editing: Just color corrections, shadow/highlights adjustments and minor tint/temperature change.
