Wenatchee River County Park, Monitor, WA, Day 4

Icicle Creek, Levenworth, WA
Wednesday, June 4, 2014, Wenatchee River County Park, Monitor, WA, Day 4 - 0 miles, 9331.4 For the Trip

I drove back to Levenworth and stopped at the Forest Service Ranger Office to see if there were any near by waterfalls to photograph. They said no, but gave me a map of area trails & suggested I drive along Icicle Road and check out the Creek. I took a few photos of the creek as well as some Lupins along side the road. A very pretty drive with a number of forest service campgrounds.

After that I stopped in Levenworth to take a few photographs of the town. Lots of interesting buildings & a concert just starting in the bandstand as I arrived.

After that it was back to the campground & sitting out taking hummingbird photos. I started with the D700, but quickly switched to the D800. You can see the difference - all images at ISO 640 & f: 2.8 to get the shutter speeds high enough to freeze wings. Even at 1/8000 of a second, the wings still blur! The first image was the D700, the rest with the D800.



All the photos on today's LakeshoreImages Page.

Dinner was a cheeseburger. I'm heading into town to purchase the blueberries & pie stuff after posting the web page. That way I don't have to try to squeeze the trailer into the Albertson's parking lot.

Until tomorrow -

  1. I love the Wenatchee area. I was surprised at how much Leavenworth had grown. Your pictures are just incredible. When we stayed nearer to Leavenworth we stayed at Icicle River Campground (think that was it's name) - incredibly fast flowing river. Got some good pictures there. When I went west, alone, I drove up from Salmon to Leavenworth one day and to Wisdom MT the next day.
