[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lucia Falls in Southwest Washington state offers the photographer the very best opportunities in this area to capture Salmon and Steelhead jumping a falls as trhey head home to their beginnings. This was taken on an overcast day and with a raging river that seemed to overtake the normal 10-15 foot drop off of the falls and left it at 5 feet.

Hi Steven,what a timing and what a interesting and different pic.I like a lot this composition and the excellent sharpness and light balance.Thanks for share,have a good night,Luciano.

Hi Steven,
to click just in the right moment must have been very difficult. I wonder how many pics you took until this one.
I give 2 points for your timing, the picture itself is not very outstanding.
