Reflections by scottsmorra

Elowah Falls reflected in a small pool below the falls. Elowah is one of my favorite waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge of Oregon due to the vibrant and lush spring vegetation which surrounds the waterfall. It’s an amazing place to spend a cool spring morning.

This image was inspired by Marc Adamus who was the first photographer that I know of to capture this reflection. Thanks Marc!

Spirit Falls is great waterfall in Washington, its tucked away a little and fairly unmarked. It has been shot a lot in the last 2 years but rightfully so, it one of the more photogenic waterfalls around. The hike down ( and back up for that matter) is a a mini adventure, a steep calf burning rock garden, and a few mossy rocks to scramble around on, its a short but sweet hike.

So Lower Panther Creek Falls has been shot A LOT and it’s pretty much always shot from the same vantage point on the opposite side of Panther Creek. I decided to go for something different; partly because that water was damn cold and I had a 4 hour drive ahead of me and partly because I wanted to attempt something new. I climbed up and over several logs to find this little area buried between two massive pieces of timber right below the falls. This was really my only clean shot as the spray was crazy intense. I don’t know if this comp works or not, but it was something a bit out of the box for the area. Any who hope you enjoy this one!

“Radiance” – Spirit Falls, WA

Here is a shot from Spirit Falls, which has some of the brightest turquoise water I have seen. The falls are popular with kayakers, which is pretty crazy. Check out this video of several kayakers dropping it: Spirit Falls Kayakers

At Peace In Nature by BrianKibbons

Came across this while digging through the archives. One of my favorite images. I was hoping to visit this scene during the fall color change, but spent prime time in Utah and Arizona visiting some locations that have been on my list for years. thank for viewing my art.

Moss Covered by GreggB

I took this shot in a horrible weather conditions. It’s hard to see but there is a lot of moisture in the air coming from the waterfall. On the top of that, the rain was poring and wind blowing making impossible to shoot. I had to wipe out my polarizer just about a million times to get something usable. The image maybe OK at this resolution but I will have to retake it to get something I can print.
Anyway, I wanted to show you how beautiful this place looks, even in this bad weather condition.

Mirrored Beauty by MaxFoster

“Mirrored Beauty” – Elowah Falls, OR

Here’s a new one from Elowah Falls in Oregon. First saw this rock pool in Marc Adamus’ “Catching Pool.” Elowah may be a well known falls, but it is still one of my all time favs. I was blown away at the size of it when I first saw it, and the spray it kicks up is crazy. Speaking of Marc Adamus, I am looking forward to his Canadian Rockies workshop this coming January. Should be awesome!

Between Body and Spirit by TedGore

My friend TJ Thorne stands in observance of the powerful Spirit Falls on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge. The waters here flow swift and cold with a blue color that looks amazing against the back drop of lush green forest and warm light from above. If only each individuals spirit on this planet could be as beautiful.

TJ and I will be leading a workshop to the Gorge in April of 2016. Interested in going? Check out the details here. Columbia River Gorge Workshop
