Columbia River Gorge.

When I made my first trip to Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge, I had a vision of what I wanted to photograph.
It unfortunately was a dry year, and many of the waterfalls and creeks were at low flow.
A friend of mine invited me to join a hike to one of the more remote waterfalls.
We made our way up the trail only to have to drop back down a very steep embankment full of slick moss, mud and poison oak.
When we got to the bottom where the creek was, I saw the scene that most come here to photograph.
Being rather uninspired by the conditions, I thought I had made the hike with no photo reward, and wandered across the creek to explore a bit when I came across this vine maple that perfectly framed the waterfall.
I knew right then and there this was the shot.
