Snoqualmie Falls Sunset

Mothers Day dinner at Salish Lodge and sunset painting the rocks at Snoqualmie Falls

For Mother’s Day, we went up to Snoqualmie Falls (about an hour’s drive from Seattle) and had dinner with other family members at the Salish Lodge (it was delicious). Afterward, I did some shooting of the falls themselves as the sun went down. It’s not dramatic in this photo, but the lodge and the cliff below it are painted a subtle orange from the sunset.

What’s more interesting about this image, in my opinion, is that it was shot on my iPhone 5s using an app called Slow Shutter Cam. I steadied the phone on a railing and set the app to take an 8-second exposure, which is why the falls look powdery smooth.

I’m not a fan of apps that slap filters onto photos, but I do like something like this for achieving a look that the built-in Camera app doesn’t do.

I haven’t had a chance to edit the photos I made with my DSLR, but I’m looking forward to them.
