Photographer: Selvakumar Srinivasan, Bellevue Photo taken: Feb. 7, Franklin Falls, Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Photographer’s description: “I had been to Franklin Falls many times in summer but never in winter. The trail was covered with snow end to end and was truly a winter wonderland. It was slippery in a few places but it was worth standing at the base of falls! Spray from the falls was a challenge but I managed to get this shot. Taken with Fuji Film XE-1, 18 mm, F16, 2 seconds, ISO 200.” Katie’s critique: “Use of the slow shutter captures movement around the solid rock in the river and the beautifully cascading waterfall. The snow is a nice added element (and it looks like there was a ton of it). I almost want this frame to be wider to get more of the scope of things. Overall, great photo.” Share your recent photo from around the Northwest. Submit online at We judge the best and award a prize every December. Below is a gallery including past Reader’s Lens picks.
