Picture of the Week: Taking Pictures of Taking Pictures at Lower Oneonta Falls

8 07 2013

While doing more work for the Hiking Waterfalls in Oregon guidebook my girlfriend, Stephanie, lines up the perfect shot of Lower Oneonta Falls. I’ve had this waterfall featured a few times as Pic o’ the Week before, but if you haven’t seen it or would like to know how to get there, check out this link. Click on pic for larger image.

Video: Wahclella Falls

8 05 2013

Wahclella Falls receives far fewer visitors than the average Columbia River Gorge waterfall, perhaps due to lack of stature and visibility, as well as length of hike. Although it is often overlooked by hikers feeling the need for more exercise, Wahclella rates as high as any hike in the area in terms of beauty, if not distance. For more information on the Wahclella Falls hike, including directions, click here.

We took an amazing hike up to McCall Point at the Tom McCall Preserve last week. The wildflowers were bursting and the weather was perfect. Take a look!

I’m going to the well again for this week’s photo….The Tom McCall Preserve well. As the flowers are just starting to bloom in that area of the Gorge, the balsamroot and lupine should be in full throat in about another three weeks. Click photo for larger view.

Picture of the Week: Latourell Falls

18 02 2013

This is not even remotely the first time Latourell Falls has appeared as the Picture of the Week. And I probably need to accept the fact that it won’t be the last. Some places, usually waterfalls, consistantly produce photos that are pleasing to me. And clearly, Latourell has some kind of mystical, photographic mojo that I am powerless to resist.
