On my final morning in Oregon, I wanted to finish up with a relatively easy hike. I was already car camped in the Eagle Creek area, so I headed out to Metlako and Punchbowl. After almost completely overcast conditions for the previous 3 days, I was excited to see a few slivers of sunshine on the hike out. On my last few shots at Punchbowl, the sun finally made a full appearance and cast some nice warm light on the canyon walls. It was a really nice ending to a jam-packed trip.
Tech: 3 shots, one for sunlight, one for freezing the foliage in place, and a longer exposure for smoothing out the foreground water. Hand blended in PS.
