The Snoqualmie River Valley got its start with farming and many farms still exist in the valley.  The name of a town was even changed to reflect the influence of dairy farming in the area.  That town is Carnation (formerly know as Tolt).  This is a view of a small “farmhouse” in the valley near the Snoqualmie River in the fall.  Here the river is higher due to the rains before the image was taken.  Flooding is common in the Snoqualmie Valley, and the road from which this was taken floods on average about 5 times a year.  People of the valley have learned to live with the flooding.  I have always been amazed with this house here during the floods as it seems everything around it floods, but not the house.  During the summer the river is much lower and exposes beaches that people like gather on.  

This image is an HDR, “High Dynamic Range”, image that allows for more details in the shadows (darker areas) without “blowing out” (over exposing) the brighter areas.  This is done by taking a series of five exposures from under exposed to over exposed and combining them together into a single image.  This particular HDR image was shot “handheld” (i.e. no tripod).  Resolution of the source image is 4371 x 6556.
