Multnomah Falls – Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

Multnomah Falls

The Columbia River Gorge has one of the highest concentrations of waterfalls in the United States and is an amazing place to take a drive and enjoy the sites. Multnomah falls has almost a mythical quality to it with the bridge creating a unique visual experience from the bottom and a great vantage point to enjoy both stages of the falls.

From Wikipedia: …The falls drops in two major steps, split into an upper falls of 542 feet (165 m) and a lower falls of 69 feet, with a gradual 9 foot drop in elevation between the two, so the total height of the waterfall is conventionally given as 620 feet. Multnomah Falls is the tallest waterfall in the state of Oregon. It is credited by a sign at the site of the falls, and by the United States Forest Service, as the second tallest year-round waterfall in the United States.

 

 

 

Umbrellas In Snow – Central Park – NY

Umbrellas In Snow

While on a visit to NYC we were lucky enough to have a giant snow storm hit the city. Central park transformed into a sparsely populated winter wonderland which was truly a pleasure to walk through. I was struck by this scene for the symmetry of the tunnel framing the shot, the snow covered trees and streets, the lamp posts, and the 2 men I happened to capture out for their respective walks. It gives a sense of throwback to years past.

Siuslaw River Bridge

Completed in 1936, the Siuslaw River Bridge was designed by Conde McCullough.  Driving highway 101 through the southern Oregon coastal areas, you will find yourself passing through Florence, Oregon.  This bridge spans the Siuslaw River heading southbound out of Florence.  We went to dinner at a small seafood restaurant in Florence and the twilight ambience seemed perfect to accent the gothic architecture of the bridge.

Siltcoos Lake Pier

This image was the result of a slight detour where we found ourselves at a boat launch at a beautiful  cascade lake with crystal clear waters. I love the contrast between the browns and the blues, how the sky and the water match, and the the dock that seems to go on forever.
