[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went out to the Columbia River Gorge today to actually enjoy the snow as it has rained here non stop it seems for a few weeks now. Multnomah Falls did not have snow or ice left on its face but the roar of the falls itself was reward enough. I had to use a lower F stop than I would normally, I would have used F22 but the water was falling so rapidly I wanted to capture the different depths of the water in the lower falls. Multnomah Falls is I believe, 600 + feet from the top to the base, and is located along I-84 Eastbound from Portland, Oregon.

Very nice Steve...I have passed by but almost always in a hurry...It is a transitional place for me...I know I am going through a big city soon...but I still try to keep the mountains in my heart...this place is alsmost a safety zone for me..You did it well in almost a Technicolor..A real interesting work with that nice lens on the Smamsung!

Hallo Steven
As a new member I can now understand why it is so difficult to get away from the PC. One after another beautiful photo just seemed to pop up, and I cannot get myself away from it all. There are just so many talented photographers on the site and they all have such spectacular portfolios. This beautiful waterfall posting is a beautiful landscape, and I am sure you enjoyed photographing it. I am sure you could smell the freshness and the spray of the falling water. When we want to see a waterfall we have to drive quite far inland. The last time we saw a waterfall we were quite disappointed because it was such a stunning fall and the scene was just awesome but somebody has decided to do their washing nearby and the photographic opportunity was wasted because the line of clothing would have been captured in the photo as well. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Wow, Steven, what a fantastic landscape, how great and huge it is. I really love the composition and your choice of a vertical frame which renders the colours splendidly. This is an excellent point of view from down under the fall, the pretty bridge seeming so small. Thank you!
