Photographer: Yoshiki Nakamura, Seattle

Photo taken: Dec. 7, Snoqualmie Falls

Photographer's description: "As the temperature went down, I was hoping there would be a spectacular view at the falls. The falls were showing natural beauty as expected. I found very fascinating another natural beauty. Cold water and air formed various patterns of ice around the rocks in the river. Then water flow created white waves. With a slower shutter speed, at 2.5 seconds (and ISO 50), the water flow becomes soft and moody and shows high contrast with rocks and ice. Amazing artwork by nature."

Expert says: "This photo looks like it’s a painting, or from another planet. It’s a great use of a slow shutter and it wonderfully displays nature’s unique landforms. I love the icicles and the moving water and how those contrast with the dark rocks. Along with the color of the water, these elements make it a very soothing photograph."
