Today I photographed 7 waterfalls hoping to catch some fall color as well. The North Umpqua Scenic Byway is looking great for color. There are still lots of vine and big Leaf maples that are still green or yet to turn. It looks as though there are a lot that are just turning brown and falling. If you plan on getting out there, you should go!
I've never photographed Multnomah Falls during the fall season before, so I thought I would! I spent some time in the Columbia River Gorge this weekend and was able to see the last bit of color still hanging on.
I've already had a few inquiries about calendars this year. It should be ready later in the week. I want to receive my proof back before I offer them for sale. So stay tuned!
This photo was taken a few years ago at Shore Acres State Park during a winter storm. I processed this photo in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2. If you have been following me awhile you know that I rarely do black & whites because I love color so much. I thought it was time to practice.
Here's my last minute entry for #PlusOneMagazine2 . Thanks to +Ivan Makarov & +Andy Lee for organizing this publication. For the theme of "Home" I thought I would share a photo I took this past year in Bandon, Oregon. I have been living on the Southern Oregon Coast now for 20 years. I feel so blessed to live so close to the bay and beaches. I enjoy the beautiful and absolutely love taking photos every chance I get!
Here's a tighter composition of the Hawthorne Bridge in Portland, Oregon taken soon after the first shot I posted previously. As you can see it was getting lighter but still during the blue hour. It's my favorite time of day!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! We had some great weather the last few days on the Oregon Coast. Now we are in for some rain. I took this photo in Bandon on Saturday. It was a fun night for photography as the light was going off in different directions.
A few weeks ago I attended a night sky photography workshop put on by the awesome +Brad Goldpaint. We arrived at Smith Rock in time for the most amazing sunset I've seen in a long time. It lingered for quite awhile. What a show of color we had!
