The Lyre River is a river in Washington state that flows out of Lake Crescent in the Olympic National Park and into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Originally referred to as "singing waters" by the Indians living near it, the river was first named Rio de Cuesta by Europeans in 1790 by Gonzalo López de Haro, but was later called River Lyre after being charted by Captain Henry Kellett in 1847.

After a peaceful night of camping along the river listening to the "singing waters" of the Lyre River, I was inspired to capture some early morning, long-exposure images of the flowing water.

This is a collection of 7 black and white intimate landscape photography images from that I captured in July of 2013.
