Looking back through the mossy trees in the lush, foggy forest of Ecola State Park on the Oregon Coast.

Please, please view on black.

New on 500px : Let It Shine by TjThorne by TjThorne


This one will look better by viewing on black. Click the photo to make that happen.

I don’t have many chances to get out to nature currently. “Life gets in the way of living” kind of stuff. When my friend Tula invited me on a hike on one of the busiest trails in Oregon on the Fourth of July… I felt no hesitation about tagging along.

I think my favorite image from the day is this one right here. I was hanging out in a cave when I noticed the backlit ferns. Not thinking anything of it.. I just started shooting. I was lucky enough to catch the sun peeking through the space between the top of the cave and the opposing ridge line. Water dripping down the outside cliff face adds another pleasing element to the scene.

Yeah.. there was a line at the payment box in the parking lot. Yeah.. there was barely any parking. Yup… there was a highway of people walking up the trail and cooling off in the waters. Yes.. I shot Punchbowl Falls. But sometimes when you have those chances to get out and immerse yourself in natural beauty you just need to suck it up and let that opportunity shine.

Thanks for reading.

***** Please click on the photo to view it on black, it looks much better that way! ***** A hidden creek quietly moves through the dense forest of the Otways Ranges. A beautiful and peaceful place along the Great Ocean Road. Probably my favorite place in Victoria. Please head on over and like my Facebook page at: http://ift.tt/183MFHE If you enjoy my work maybe you could give my it a share? I would greatly appreciated it 🙂

New on 500px : Little Giant by ropelatophotography by ropelatophotography

http://ift.tt/1jdNKVw No one has shot this tree like Aaron Reed. If you like this shot, you have got to check his shots out, he has several, and they’re all phenomenal. I was shooting the Gorge this week and took the opportunity to head into Portland and check out the Japanese Garden for the better part of one morning. This place reminds me what is possible when people really care about what they do. It¬タルs always a pleasure hanging out at this spot. If you¬タルre ever in that area, make it a point quietly walk through yourself. Cheers -jared ropelato http://ift.tt/16IJBSj http://ift.tt/w45MJK http://ift.tt/KffsTX
