Photographer: Paul Weeks, Stanwood

Photo taken: March 17, Bridal Veil Falls State Park, Columbia River Gorge, Ore.

Photographer's description: “I just picked up a camera a few weeks ago and this was my first trip to take photos. Spent the weekend hiking, exploring the Oneonta Gorge and taking photos of interesting waterfalls along the way.”

Expert says: “This photo is beautiful in itself, but the photographer only picking up a camera a few weeks ago makes it amazing. Kudos to him! This is a great use of a slow shutter speed to show movement in the water. I like the contrast of the dark-green moss against the white rushing water — something a little different from the normal rapids/waterfall shot.”

-- Katie Greene, Seattle Times photo staff
