Sugar-coated Multnomah Falls

On Thursday, a ‘snowstorm’ that would be laughable by northeast US standard passed through the area. True to form, snow did form and it actually stuck. Not to miss out on enjoying the Columbia River Gorge covered in snow, I headed out to photograph Wahclella Falls. I was joined by three great people: Brian, William, and Britta. The hike to […]

Winter is coming

Make no mistake: Autumn made a brief cameo in the sitcom of seasonal change but winter is coming and he’s angry, my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli.

The Path of Least Resistance, Groupings IV

Ruckel Creek Falls is a great place to visit if you’re trying to get a handle on this type of nature photography. It’s a short walk from the main parking area at the Eagle Creek Trail, right off of I84, and doesn’t require navigating any tough terrain to get to. A lot of the additions to my Path of Least Resistance study […]
