It feels like forever since I've been out shooting in the Gorge, or anywhere for that matter. As nice as it is to have the sun out and the Jeep top down it's not my favorite weather for shooting. This image is from a trip this past spring to Ruckel Creek. I'll have to make up for time lost this coming Fall when the clouds return and the leaves start changing.

Let me be frank.  I dig the new Photos feature on mobile but hate it on my PC.  It took me way too long to figure out how to add this to one of my albums that I started before Google put out Photos.  //shortrant

I've spent a lot of time in the Columbia River Gorge, and will spend a ton more exploring new places. So far, of the places I've been Gorton Creek near the Wyeth Campground is one of my favorites. This is Emerald Falls just up the trail on an easy hike. This cascading creek is filled with beautiful and picturesque spots for any level of hiker to enjoy.

Spent the last two days celebrating the birthdays of these two awesome kids. 18 and 14, time flies when you're having fun, or when you have two kids who keep you on your toes and entertained. I love them both and look forward to what the future holds for them. This coming Fall my daughter will head off to college and my son will enter his first year of high school, I'm excited for them both.

I took these photos of the two of them with my iPhone on our way to dinner downtown Portland. I love the atmosphere and backdrops the city offers.

Gorton Creek Falls - Part II

As you begin to make plans for the weekend maybe you're considering a trip out to see some waterfalls. May I make a suggestion? Go to this one.

This is one of the lesser known falls off Hwy 84 in the Columbia River Gorge. I'm not sure if it's because of its location, the fact you can't see it from your car, or that the hike isn't a casual one. It's not that the hike is long, it's just filled with obstacles you have to climb over, under, or around. If you're up for a little adventure park at the Wyeth Campground and just follow the creek until you can't go any further and this is what you will see. Along the path you will also see Emerald Falls which the path skirts along as you come to the more difficult part of the hike.

Gorton Creek

Oh, so you haven't visited Gorton Creek yet? Well you should. If you want to experience the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge but don't want to hassle with the crowds, then this is your spot. Just walk through the campground after parking off the Wyeth exit off Hwy 84 and you'll soon see a meandering creek. Follow this creek towards it's source as far as you can go, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Mmmm... Coffee

Today was weekend thirteen for the coffee dates my wife and I are doing. So far we are having a lot of fun getting out and seeing more of Portland and its cozy neighborhoods. The coffee culture in Portland is as impressive as the craft beer one. We have so many more shops and roasters to try that it will be years before we duplicate a spot.

What a great idea!  I noticed the abundance of coffee shops while we were there - between them, the breweries, and the cozy little restaurants, it's easy to get lost in Portland.  Looking forward to returning one day!

My first shot of the hummingbird that has been coming to my new feeders. I was inspired by +Alexis Coram and her recent and amazing hummingbird shots to try to attract some to my small backyard. After a month I've had this one returning regularly for two weeks. I finally got out there to get a shot of it.

Falls Creek Falls

This was from my second time hiking up to this falls last week and I assure you it won't be my last. The next time I'm going to hike up to the top to see the falls above more closely.

+Colby Brown was in town and +Brian Matiash and +Nicole S. Young wanted to show him some of the sweet spots in the PNW and although we only hit one of the three on the list for the day it was still a good time. The sun and clouds were battling it out and we sat patiently waiting for the few moments the clouds were winning. After a bit we called it good and headed home, the sun was winning a bit too much.

Big M in B&W

Sometimes a photo just screams black and white. I don't do many but on this morning the clouds were sweeping by the falls and when I looked at the photo in color it was okay but the contrast of the trees, water, and rock prompted me to convert it to black and white. I shot this from the parking lot off 84 with my 70-200mm because when I walked up to the falls the clouds were hidden against the sky and it was hard to tell their proximity to the falls.

Gorton Creek Falls

I went out this past weekend to Gorton Creek and asked +Nicole S. Young to grab a shot of me in front of the falls with my iphone.  I was pretty stoked with how it turned out.  This was taken using the Slow Shutter app available in the App Store.

Skunk Flower

The first day +Ana Andres was in town I decided to take her on an adventure to see Abiqua Falls. Those that have been know that it's more than just a quick trip down. I've been a few times and know the joy of seeing the falls for the first time when you round that last bend, it never gets old for me. When we got to that spot along the river I had to stop and see Ana's reaction to seeing the falls for the first time. Totally priceless. Her reaction was why I love taking people to places like this.

We walked into the falls and started to scout where we would take our shots. I immediately noticed the small patch of skunk cabbage up on the right rim and knew that's where I was heading. After wading through the very cold creek I had to climb the unstable hillside making sure that with each step I didn't dislodge the large loose rocks. Once at the top I found that most of the flowers were either broken off, facing the wrong way for a good shot, or not fully developed. But there was this one. After a few shots I had to make the nasty climb down, fortunately I to ford the creek to get back which allowed me to wash all the mud off that I collected on the way up.

There are some amazing places in Oregon that are a bit off the beaten path. Here's one I visited recently.
