Great scenic photography is 90% getting in front of interesting subjects. (The other 90% is planning, equipment, technique, and tenacity but that’s for another day.) Sometimes during my travels, I have stumbled into locations or circumstances that were so incredible it simply blew my mind. Silver Falls State Park in central Oregon is one of those locations.
Imagine having a hole in the ground 175 feet deep with a diameter of a mile or so. Into that hole in the ground fall a dozen waterfalls from around it’s edges. Each waterfall has a total different character. You may recall I mentioned when I was there they had record rainfall and these falls were raging and so beautiful.
There is a 9 mile trail at the bottom of the hole taking you to visit all of these waterfalls. The trail goes behind the veil of several. Simply stunning scenery and I understand it is even better in Autumn. Often referred to as the “Crown Jewel” of the Oregon park system. Silver Falls is truly a paradise which inspired this photograph of the North Falls.
