I went to the Columbia River Gorge to visit friends in Hood River. They were busy with kids and work during the day so I knew I'd have time to go photograph in the Gorge. One evening up in the wildflowers at Rowena and the rest of the time spent with some of the lovely waterfalls. That said, this might be my favorite from the area. There is a lot going on in here with the depth of reflection extending behind the two front trees. With all the flooding in the west, there have been a few opportunities like this which I've enjoyed and now I have a keener eye when I see water around an expanse of trees. So many great shapes and lines. The waterfalls were lovely too, but everyone seems to have those. This was taken just across the street and rail tracks from Horsetail falls on the historic highway 30 route through the Gorge. Funny enough, I stood in the creek in flip flops for about half an hour and nearly froze my feet off with nothing else in the end to show for it! Ahhhh, but this is the experience of photography. Just across the street on the tracks with a perfectly level ground and dry feet, there it is.
I haven't officially named it yet and it deserves a title better than I've given it so if anyone has any ideas, please share.
