The back lit leaves make a great screen for the falls. They are a picture all by thmselves with their brilliance and detail. Well done.

One of my favorites in the series, so far. It says so much about where we are--the landscape is so green, so fecund, precisely because there is so much water here. A striking (but still subtle) visual statement.

Dazzling light over your leaves. Light is such a glorious thing. It's more than color, it the secret ingredient that stirs the pot of colors, like the spice that makes your stew.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Like the point of view through the leaves and the lovely light on them. And the nice natural tones of the greens... more better for me... :-)

27 Jun 2010 12:29pm

@Evelyne Dubos: Color of the greens is the result of the backlighting. The actual color was way more vibrant, what you see in most of the other photographs. Almost all of the vegetation in the Gorge this year looks super-saturated, especially if it is wet and the sky is overcast or raining.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

Nice lighting !

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

Utterly splendid Jack!! I'm a real fan of backlighting and look what it has done to this amazing view! Your eye was spot on this day and your execution equally adept.
