Multnomah Falls has to be one of the most photographed water falls in the world, it is very easy to get to and is stunningly pretty. A quick Google image search will present more images of these falls than you could ever really sort through, but that doesn’t diminish how much I enjoy shooting them. I don’t care that it is an iconic scene that has been shot from every possible angle and vantage point, I continue to visit and continue to shoot, it is simply a special place to me. There is not other way to put it, these falls have been very good to me photographically.
I made this image this last weekend when we took a day trip down to the gorge. I decided to zoom in a bit and also shot from a slightly higher vantage point up the path that heads to the bridge seen in this image. I also took this image into Perfect Effects from OnOne Software to punch up the contrast a bit and to enhance the green ever so slightly. One thing that is I really like about it, but is very hard to see in this small version, is both the people that you can see on the bridge are taking pictures at the same instant that I captured this shot. I am thrilled with the results and hope you enjoy it also.
