Tag Archives: Twisp River

I had a nice walk near the confluence of the Twisp and Methow Rivers last week. New snow blanketed the ground and the sun was shining brightly. Fortunately I remembered to bring some filters.

I spent part of yesterday with a high school senior who is interested in pursuing photography. Kayla already has a good eye for composition and color and hopes to go to college to learn more. She particularly likes nature photography so we started out walking to the park near the confluence of the Twisp and Methow Rivers. The weather has been dreary and gray and the ice around Twisp is treacherous for walking. Along the rivers, there is much less ice than in other years. Kayla has explored this area for years and she said normally there is enough ice to walk across the Twisp River. Every year is different and I expect these are the kinds of changes we need to get used to.

You can see more photos of Kayla here at my Reflected Light Images blog.

This time of year, the Twisp River seems more like a creek or small stream. A few months ago it was a different story as it flowed to the tops of its banks and filled side channels from its confluence with the Methow at Twisp to Road’s End. Now it’s a welcoming respite, reflecting the colors starting to turn to fall.
