Snoqualmie Falls at Sunset

The sky had been heavy with clouds, the air dark and dripping as I hiked along the Snoqualmie River in central Washington. But when I approached the hike's end at Snoqualmie Falls, the sun broke through a slim window of clouds on the western horizon, lighting the falls and surrounding basalt rock with a golden glow.
