Multnoma Falls, Oregon

I have to say one of the most beautiful places that I have visited is only a state away. It is rich in scenic locations throughout its entirety. If you're looking for waterfalls this is the place, every water fall is unique and has its own charm to it. Just standing by these mountainous flowing viens of purity is enough to enlighten the most dedicated couch potato's restless spirit enough to keep'em coming back for more. Multnomah Falls is the 2nd tallest waterfall in the nation. The water Fall drops 620 feet. If it gets cold enough the whole waterfall actually freezes into one big popsicle.

I used one of those really cheap lens a 4/5.6 and I have to say that it did a pretty good job. No distortion around the edges with good results. Since I have taken the photo the lens was stolen and it was the only one I really used for landscape photos, so I put the landscape shots on hold until I got another lens which I finally managed to pick one up recently.

Exceptionala captura!
Podul de deasupra cascadei este o splendoare.
Sunt curios ce timp si expunere ai folosit de a iesit apa ata de faina.
Mariana

Hi Paul,

This is a wonderful picture of this waterfall. I love the milky effect created by the long exposure and its not to bright. Nice colours and well composed.
Good capture and TFS

Hi Paul

This is really a breathtaking scenario. This Multnoma Falls is amazing and your image
is absolutely marvellous. Even the man made structure, the bridge, fits so well with the
rest of the image that it is rather an enhancement as opposed to a distraction. The sharp
details allows the viewer to see all the textures of the rocks as well as the foliage and the
shapes of the vegetation growing all along the cliffs and the rock face. The beautiful and
stimulating greens acted as a fabulous frame for the falling water which you skilfully nailed
by means of a slight timed exposure. You hide your camera & photo info, but don't worry,
we can see trough it (chuckle).

Well done MF and TFS.
Regards
Loot

Hallo Paul
Looking at this refreshing scene makes me forget for a few moments about the sweltering heat and uncomfortably conditions we normally have in the summer.(sometimes up to 45C and even higher). How I would love to be on this unspoilt place right now. The nature you have captured here is awesome. This is my kind of photograph. Relaxing, inviting, unpretentious and pleasing to the eye and the whole psyche. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
Anna

Hello Paul,
a wonderful picture of this waterfall, perfect exposure and management showing perfectly the water like silk, splendid natural colours, excellent POV and composition.
TFS
Best regards
Ciao Maurizio

Hy Paul
Extraordinary image and impressive waterfall! It is really refreshing to see this kind of images, especially in the winter times when dark colors are all around us.
Kind regards,
Oana

Such a nice "fall"scape made twice beautiful with a slow shutter speed, which gave the falling water a fine, silky look among the clear, "emeraldy" greens Paul, TFS this beautiful vertical composition my friend.

Hello Paul,
A magnificent falls indeed, I imagine the sound and water spray must have been awesome to experience as well. Love the lush vegetation which frames this shot so well and adds a beautiful cotrast in colors.
My wife (Rosie) loves falls so whenever we are treaveling we have to stop at any nearby falls. It's kind of ironic, but the calendar we have hanging up right in front of me has the exact same falls on the cover. The angle is exactly the same as yours, but they cropped out the pool below. I like your version much better!!
Ron
PS. Thank You so much for including the long list of falls which can be found in Oregon, I'm sure it will come in handy some day!

Excelente encuadre y composición.
A ver si publicas más !!

Saludos.

Hi Paul

This is a superb shot of this famous landmark that i've seen many nice captures of before.
It's definitely one of the most photogenic waterfalls i've seen and you managed to capture it very well here. A symmetric composition works like a charm and the POV you chose in order to place the bridge where it is, is great, too.
The long shutter adds a bit more motion and saturation to the scene as well, making this a gorgeous capture.

Bravo, TFS and have a lovely Sunday!
Horia

Hi Paul,
This is a beautiful waterfall scape. Slow speed has rendered the water flow very well. The vertical compsition using a wide lens puts an unusual perspective too. TFS
