Ponytail Falls is about a mile hike straight up the Columbia River Gorge. Normally an intimate waterfall, it was now roaring with run-off from the wettest June on record. (That happens often on my trips! The most rain in a week, the coldest snap in years, even the worst drought in a century but that’s for another post.)
I ventured behind the fall and composed the waterfall and stream together by stitching two side-by-side exposures into a panoramic.
The Columbia River Gorge is one if those locations we dream about as photographers. Incredible waterfalls, lush greens and dramatic drop-offs. One of my favorite hikes is the Eagle Creek trail which is as dramatic as it is beautiful.
