During all these years there existed within me a tendency to follow Nature in her walks…

The first time we visited Oregon’s beautiful Columbia River Gorge we were spellbound by its beauty and by the sheer number of waterfalls. We went on so many hikes the week we were there that we got our 10k steps in without any effort. This photo is taken at the stunning Wahkeena falls. This hike started out as just a trip to Fairy falls but we ran into this beautiful fall on the way. Later I learned that this fall is tough to photograph and while I took 3 – 4 images I didn’t get a composition that I liked. So, I didn’t post the image at the time. Recently I was going over some of my old images as part cleaning up my storage when saw this image. I decided to process the photos and see if I could get some interesting images.
Processing wise I boosted the contrast a bit and cropped out some of the bottom parts that were too distracting. I wish I had spent some time here looking for some more interesting compositions.
