A beautiful snow (and ice) covered evening in Corvallis, Oregon was the perfect opportunity to go out and play. :-) I have always loved the snow, and this evening was amazing. Just like being a kid outside until late. Only, difference is the lights froze much easier than the old hot little lights I remember, and every one of them was like a little crystal work of art.

Multnomath Falls, Oregon
When we started planning our trip to Oregon, Multomath Falls was the one thing that I definitely wanted to see. As you can see we definitely made it. This shot was handheld with a fast shutter, I have a few other creative shots I'll share in the near future, some nice long exposures. At around 620 feet tall the falls are beautiful to visit any time of year. And being only 30 minutes to the east of Portland they are easy to get to. Even in the dry days of summer... (yes Portland does have dry days, this was the end of August and they had not had any rain for the whole month.) even in summer, the falls are full and beautiful because they are fed by an underground spring. Still, I can't wait to go back and see what they are like in the rainy season.

Tualatin Commons Evening Lake Reflections
We recently spent some time in Tualatin, Oregon, just south of Portland. We stayed at a beautiful hotel, (The Century Hotel, the Building on the left) that backed up to Tualatin Commons Park. Most evenings we took a walk around this beautiful lake and watched the change of the guards. It seems the Geese take the day shift, and leave with quite a bit of fanfare an hour or two before sunset. Starting around that time, the ducks start to come in for a very entertaining waterskiing landing.

Bridal Veil Moss View
This is a view of Bridal Veil Falls in Oregon through the beautiful moss covered trees. Bridal Veil is just south of the columbia river on the northern border with Washington. It is a bit of a hike down to the falls (and even more of a hike back up) but it's definitely worth the trip.
