Duringa recent adventure I ended my hike at this spot on Royal Creek, this is near where it flows in the the Dungeness River. This image only took me 4 years to get. When I first started into photography I shot a very similar composition at this spot, but with being completely clueless, instead of half clueless like now, the shot was not exactly what I wanted. I went back the following year and hiked this again to find a hiker had knocked down most of the plants with a stick for some reason. Then I went back again last year and I was too early as the plants had not sprouted yet. Then yesterday I saw these plants were up and doing well at Hurricane Ridge so I left there early to leave myself just enough time to get to this spot on the way home and hurry a mile down the trail to get this shot and I finally got one I'm happy with.
