Panorama

In the Canyon

This is a 14 image 42.6 megapixel pano of the Wahclella Falls gorge near the Bonneville dam on the Columbia River. We try to get out here pretty regularly as it's a fairly easy hike with a nice loop through this canyon with a view of Wahclella falls at the apex. You can click the link under the photo to see a full size section up close.

I've mentioned (I think) that I got my hands on a Sony RX1r on New Years Day and have been carrying it daily along with a film camera. It has a similar sensor to the one on my Sony A7ii, but no anti-alias filter which I'm noticing produces greater detail overall.

I really like how this photo captures the energy in the river, the thin veiling of the undulating moisture in the air and the warmth of the winter sun cutting into this secluded space.

The Upper Falls of Multnomah Creek

The kids and I hiked up past the upper observatory deck of Multnomah Falls to see the two waterfalls that most visitors never see. Dutchman falls is a smaller cascade over a mound of basalt chunks and then a gentle pour from the pull beneath. There's been a log in front of the falls for a couple years now, but hey, that's nature.

There's nothing quite like the view through a Hasselblad viewfinder. The kids and I took turns framing things up. I'll share those shots when I get them developed.

The trail continues to wind up into the forest, but not before a beautiful view of Weisendanger Falls. There are a bunch of logs to climb if you want to get right up near the falls, but it's pretty easy even for my 7 year old. Weisendanger can fluctuate quite a bit, and this photo shows it at a particularly light flow. I'm looking forward to coming back once the rains start up again and we get more snow pack.
