Proxy Falls in Oregon



This shot of Proxy Falls in the Sisters Wilderness of Oregon has been sitting in my ready file for awhile now. When first looking through the many shots that I took in this area, I was not excited about the waterfall shots, which was disappointing because it took a lot of work to get down to the base and more particularly to get back up. When I looked at them again, months later, they didn't seem so bad. This one wasn't my favorite but I decided to try a crop and edit to see how it turned out. Waterfall shooting is something that I have not done much of so any input would be appreciated. This is of the lower portion of the falls - the sporadic sunlight made them even more difficult to capture and expose correctly.


View large if you have a chance.


This wilderness is in part a geological marvel of volcanic destruction and another part beautiful, lush green wilderness. I can't wait to go back but will probably do so when mosquitos are absent..


Thanks for taking the time to look and happy Monday to everyone. I'm off for a full day of school.
