Oneonta Gorge

The Columbia River Gorge is about 40 minutes outside of Portland, Oregon. A vast and lush region, mostly accessible by just a short walk and the nature is pure spectacular rainforest, even by Hawaiian standards. In the winter this gorge is swollen with the rush of watershed, but in early fall after a few years of pacific northwest drought the creek bed is about as dry as it gets. It seems that this incredible slot canyon is spectacular no matter what natural phenomena is occurring there. In this shot I took a long exposure to highlight the water droplets dripping down the canyon walls at first light.
