This photo was taken in October of 2016 in the Tumwater Canyon on the Wenatchee River near the old pipeline bridge near Leavenworth, Washington. It is a very scenic and iconic area to photograph especially in the fall. The fall of 2016 was an especially good year for fall colors in the Tumwater Canyon.
I left my home in Prosser, Washington at 4:30 am and travelled northwest to the Bavarian town of Leavenworth, Washington. It is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Prosser and I wanted to get there in time for sunrise. Arriving in Leavenworth at 7:00 am there was no noticeable sunrise colors so I decided to head west on highway 2 and make stops all along the highway hoping for a beautiful shot. At my first stop there was too much fog so I continued west on the highway. I stopped at the old pipeline bridge and hiking trail and set up my tripod and gear around 7:20am. It wasn't as foggy at this location and the colors looked wonderful in the crisp morning air. There was a little bit of fog west of the pipeline bridge which added to the photographic scene. I tried different shutter speeds and different compositions and this seemed the best one to me. I loved that there was a full palette of fall colors. I hope you enjoy this fall scene.
