Sunrise On Snowball Hill




(After a short hiatus last week, I’m now back at the computer. It was a stressful week as my air conditioner went totally out on Tuesday evening and had to be replaced. Replacement occurred Friday afternoon, after a week of hot and humid weather, with comfort index reaching as high as 105F! And to top […]

Although only 242 feet tall, it was one of my favorite waterfalls I found during my visit to the Gorge. There were several reachable viewpoints and each had it’s own advantages. Here are […]

Horsetail Falls




Today’s post comes from a small waterfall that is located near Multnomah Falls … Horsetail Falls. Although it lacks the grandeur of Multnomah Falls, I found it very private and intimate, being able to maneuver all around the falls to capture different views and feelings. Here are a couple of my favorite images I captured […]

The Big Thaw




After our recent ice storm, while surveying the landscape, temperatures rose above 32F causing the ice to begin to melt. One interesting observation was watching the ice melt from a Red Cedar tree (hey, if Nebraskans can pass time by watching the corn grow, we Missourians can pass time by watching the ice melt!).
