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!
This photo was taken at Sunset Beach State Park along the Oregon Coast, not far from where I live. I was photographing that great sun dog sky when this boy walked into my view. Read post in Google+
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!
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!
I just returned from the Palouse in Washington. I had a great time and the weather couldn't have been better. I thought I would share one of my favorite photos from the trip. Check out my tutorial on how to use Lightroom 5's new Radial Filter Tool. I've never done a video like this before, but hopefully I'll get better at it :) Demo for Lightroom 5 Radial Filter Tool
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!
Happy #sunsetsaturday ! Last night was the nicest sunset we've had here on the Southern Oregon Coast in weeks. August tends to be cloudless skies and lots of fog here. I was thrilled to run out to the beach, it felt great. Though I've photographed Sunset Bay a jillion times, I never get tired of going out there. I met some nice photog folks from out of town and we enjoyed it together.
Have a safe and happy holiday weekend if you are in the US!
If it's grey and rainy like it is here, I hope this photo brightens your day! I took this photo last year during the tulip festival at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm. I was lucky to see the hot air balloons on two visits.
This photo is from a series of my first big Shore Acres high surf shots from 2009. I was thrilled that the event happened on a day I wasn't working. I'd never been able to make it before when I heard there were high surf advisories. This was handheld and it shows. It's not the best image quality, I have learned a lot since then. I recently reprocessed this image while playing around with a demo of Silver Flex Pro 2.
Since that time I have photographed hundreds of these crashing waves like many others from the area and beyond. I never get tired of seeing these waves crashing against the cliffs out there. It's so mesmerizing and thrilling to watch. Read post in Google+
I had a great time meeting people at the Windfest in Bandon over the weekend! I hope everyone had a good one.
I'm still plugging along updating my websites. I am working on my blog this week. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Posting a reworked photo taken last winter while hanging out with friends. This is Moulton Falls Bridge on the Lewis River in Washington.
Have a great night! #washington #lewisriver #moultonfallsbridge #pacificnorthwest #photography Read post in Google+
Happy Friday everyone! I've been busy and haven't posted anything for a couple of days. I wanted to share this image of the Cedar Creek Grist Mill. In December I had a great day of exploring some areas in Washington with +Darren White and +Tracy Fawns. It was a really fun day! Read post in Google+

I've been enjoying the beautiful beach of Bandon with wonderful photographers the last couple of weeks. This particular image I shot last night along with +dene' miles+Gregory Pepion+Patricia Thomas and a others not on G+. The sunset was not looking very promising so we were all totally surprised and delighted to see such gorgeous color begin to light up the sky! It's not my intention to only post Face Rock images lately, but when the light is just right and it frames it nicely, well....
Last night the weather looked promising so I drove to Bandon for the sunset. The fog moved in when I arrived, but I waited it out. The sun burst through the clouds over one section of the beach for only a few moments. I have a couple other photos I will share that I liked as well later.
Just a reminder that I still have my summer sale on my website only until the end of this month. Take 15% off at check out using code 'SUMMER2013'. Let me know if you don't see a photo on my website that you've seen me post elsewhere. http://www.patriciadavidsonphotography.com/
I photographed Thor's Well at Cape Perpetua near Yachats last October with a friend. It's such an exciting place to photograph, but scary too :)
EDIT: Ok, this is more of the story for +Mike Spinak :)
+Tracy Fawns and I went together on this photo excursion. I had been wanting to go for awhile. We had to wait it out to get the best spout action from the hole. All the time there are waves coming in front and from the sides of us. Watching our backs, dodging the spays and trying to be safe makes it very exciting. We were a bit giggly and scared at the same time :) Read post in Google+
Last night's sunset at Sunset Bay State Park. Have a great day everyone!
~ Smooth ~ Good morning! Can't believe it's #waterfallwednesday again thanks to +Eric Leslie. I've been gone for an extended weekend shooting more waterfalls and having some family fun. But this image is from my trip from the Gorge a couple of weekends ago shot from Eagle Creek. I really didn't think I had any photos from the bottom that would be good because the light changed and the sun really came out all over the falls. I wasn't too concerned as I had a photo from last year I was happy with. Have a great day!
