Now a few classic scenes for next few posts

This photo comes from my second visit where fires had seriously damaged this place compared to my first visit.

In some ways this is a lousy way to show this feature, Multnomah Falls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River gorge, since it is a very vertical feature. But I’m doing all my “backgrounds” in 16:9 aspect ratio so even though I rotated my camera to emphasis the vertical aspect I cropped out just this part. BTW, that bridge was closed on our most recent visit but normally you can go there.

These falls are just one of the fantastic sites along the Columbia which deserves at least a one day side-trip from Portland. It can be crowded on the roads however and it is a high speed Interstate (on the Oregon side) so not the best for auto siteseeing, but there are some local low-speed roads around as well (check you maps for the most scenic routes).

      Having just done a search at WordPress there are a lot of far better photos, which are great to view, but it’s nice to have one of my own, even if fairly ordinary. “big” scenes are easy (and not many near me) so sometimes one has to search for something worth shooting.
