An easy hike on Orcas Island, one of Washington's San Juan Islands, leads past a trio of waterfalls on Cascade Creek in Moran State Park. The largest, Cascade Falls, is currently choked with logs and tree blowdown. This photo shows Rustic Falls - not as tall, but in a pretty setting. I shot a bracketed set here thinking the contrast range would require HDR or exposure blending, but Lightroom 4 was able to pull detail in the shadows and hold the highlights from a single NEF (Nikon raw) file.
