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 seattletimes.com/northwestphotos. We judge the best and award a prize every December.
