White Creek #14

Whitehead Creek flowing down a steep, overgrown hillside to where it meets the Willamette River in the western foothills of Oregon's Cascade Mountains.

This is one of many small, often unmarked creeks flowing off of this particular hillside. While appearing inconsequential from the roadside, making the effort to bushwack through the dense, damp, steep, slippery underbrush is replete with rewards for an determined photographer.

Shot with a Sony a99 using a 28-75mm lens set to F25 and exposed for 20 sec.

I have not though over the 4th I spent the better part of a week in Manzanita. From our base there we ranged up and down the coast. One we did drive down to Tillamook where hiked around the Cape Meares, Cape Lookout and Netarts Bay areas. I'll have to make a point to find those falls the next time I'm in the area.

Oceanside is just south of Cape Meares on the same road. Great shots and not crowded. North of Manzanita is Oswald West worth the short hike to the beach
