Nat Geo Traveler 2012 Photography Contest
Below is my entry into this years competition.
Caption: Located at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains just east of Seattle, dwells an awe inspiring place called Rattlesnake Ridge. After hiking in some very inclement wet weather, I came upon this beautiful scene seemingly straight out of a storybook. The lush and vibrant colors of the foliage taking center stage as the shadowy ridge loomed in the background providing a blanket of protection from the outside world.
Location: Northbend, Washington
