Walls of Green

Walls of Green

Ive traveled to Portland a few times now and every time I go I love the area more and more. In fact, Ive been back once already after taking this photo and Ive already booked another trip to return. Between the beautiful nature, the amazing breweries, the donuts, the fish whats not to love

Andy and I visited Oneonta Gorge on our first day in the Columbia River Gorge. It was his first time here and he absolutely loved it. We were late in the spring season and although it wasnt the ideal time to be photographing, we still had a blast exploring the giant moss covered canyon walls.

Andy fixated on this spot and had to convince me that it was even worth looking at. When I got there I liked how the walls drew the eye in, the fallen tree provided an extra line, the cliffs on the left framed the photo, Oneonta Falls peaks around the corner in the background, and the giant rock in the center … well, its there. Sure there are better photos of the Oneonta Gorge but I thought this represented quite well why this place has people coming to visit over and over and over.
