Silver Falls State Park, Oregon

posted on 26th of june, 2008

I had the good fortune recently to travel down to Oregon. While I was there I visited the Silver Falls State Park. There are ten waterfalls within a ten mile hike. All of the falls are beautiful, and many are over 100 ft in height. The morning started off cloudy, so with a polarizer in hand the colorful green moss was jumping out at me!

Shown here are the South Falls, Lower South Falls, and the Winter Falls. It is about an hour's drive from Portland. The hike of the 10 falls can be done in under three hours, but if you are taking lots of photos you need to plan for some more time than that.

Today marked another milestone for me as well: 1% portfolio exposure (148 uploads)!

Brad, I live in Portland and shoot at Silver Falls all the time. It is a very difficult area in which to shoot, as any sunlight falling into the canyon creates deep shadows and heavy highlights, and the forest makes it difficult to get clear shots of some of the waterfalls. These factors are precisely what make it fun for me. Nice work!
