Oneonta Falls, Oregon

Oneonta Falls, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Oregon

Canon 30d, 17-40 f/4L

ISO: 100, aperture: f/22, shutter: 8 seconds, filter: circular polarizer, tripod: yes

The Oneonta Falls is accessed by hiking through a narrow slot canyon about a 1/4 mile from the ‘trailhead’.  The hike involves climbing over a log jam and depending on the stream flow, wading through waist deep water.  It’s a great adventure with a spectacular waterfall at the end of the canyon.

I placed the camera on a tripod, set the self timer, ran upstream and got into position for a self-portrait.  Having a person in the scene helps to convey a sense of size to the canyon and falls.  I’ll tell you, I had some anxious moments holding still for the 8 second exposure thinking about my camera perched in a precarious location in the middle of the creek.
