The waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge are spectacular this time of year. This is a shot of the lower Latourelle Falls taken from the historic Columbia River Highway in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge.
Oregon’s capitol building in Salem, Oregon has been through some troubled times. In fact, this is Oregon’s third capitol building – the first two were destroyed by fires. The current building was completed in 1938, and it hasn’t been without its share of catastrophe — an earthquake caused serious damage to the Capitol Dome in 1993 and another fire caused the Governor to evacuate a number of his offices in 2008. Here is a photo of Oregon’s Capitol at twilight.
Mt Hood has received quite a bit of snow lately, and I’ve had a couple of recent opportunities to photograph this big hill in my backyard!.I grabbed this image as I drove into Boring, Oregon on 282nd just at sunset. The light was amazing – not only producing a beautiful “alpenglow” on the snow-covered flanks of the Mountain, but it was also lighting the church and the community in the valley below. I quickly pulled over — making my wife wait in the car while I jumped across the street with my camera!
Kandra and I had a great high school senior portrait session in the Columbia River Gorge this fall! We started the evening off at Lewis and Clark State Park in Troutdale, Oregon to take advantage of all the autumn leaves that had fallen to the ground.
