Obligatory: Best viewed on black.

Another image from my nearly week-long trek along Eastern Oregon and Eastern Washington. This is Palouse falls in some desert canyon area.

I had the tripod on the edge of a cliff. For those who’ve shot here, you know someone could easily give you a little nudge, that’s all it would take, and you would be over the edge. And that would be all she wrote. So there’s a pretty clear danger of falling, when you set your tripod up on the edge of a cliff anyway.

I had this lady by me that didn’t really understand the idea of a personal bubble. She kept creeping closer and closer. Soon, her tripod leg was all the way under my tripod. I couldn’t even maneuver around my camera. I’m like, “lady, I don’t want to accidentally kick your tripod over that 100 foot cliff.” Even though, I secretly did.

A group of photographers were shooting this fall well before sunset. But as soon as the sun set, they decided, because there was no color at sunset, they would give up. Just because the sun has set, doesn’t mean the chance for color is gone! Probably half or more missed these great pinks that moved in for only couple minutes. Patience, people!

This is a blend of exposures and a stitch to show off that lovely sky.

New on 500px : The Gorge by AdelbertEllingsgaard by AdelbertEllingsgaard

This gorge is by the small village of Gjógv in the Faroe Islands. The faorese name ‘við Gjógv’ means the village by the gorge.

New on 500px : Pebbled Greens by JustinGrimm by JustinGrimm

In case you don’t follow a lot of photographers on Facebook, you probably haven’t heard about the totally epic amount of talent that came together less than 2 weeks ago in the Columbia River Gorge. With at least 25 of the best picture taking masters packed in the back of a small Oregon pub together, it is safe to say you would be hard pressed to find more talent in one place anywhere. I doubt you could listen to a nerdier photo conversation on the globe also. For some reason, I got an invite to this event. Most likely a mistake at the post office….

In any case, it was awesome to have the privilege of meeting so many photographers I have learned from, and that I have drooled heavily over their work for years.

This is the first image of a small bundle that I was happy with capturing over my week in the Gorge and Olympic Peninsula. Nothing crazy, just a soothing creek scene, no further than a 5 minute walk from my campsite. Adventurous, I know! As for the techie stuff, this is a 6 image focus stack with a blend of shutter speeds and ISOs to maintain serious detail. For some reason I couldn’t bring it out well in this web version, but if you are in Edmonton over the summer this will be printed for my upcoming art display. I’m thinking at least a 45×30 acrylic. What do you say, sound good?

Thanks for looking!

New on 500px : Hidden Waterfall by northwestcapture by northwestcapture

I spent a little time in the Gorge this past weekend and it’s as green as I could possibly imagine any place being. This one was taken in the rain on my last morning there.

New on 500px : Oneonta Falls by mattk by mattk

This photo is from Oneonta Falls just outside of Portland, Oregon. Oneonta has been on my photography bucket-list for years, and I finally got the chance to visit. The weather was beautiful (although the water was a bit cold) and we were treated to some light rays coming across the falls at just the right time.

I wrote a full story about my trip, along with some other photos over on my blog at: www.mattk.com

Please click on image to view on A BLACK background.

Last year I came home from one of my Columbia River Gorge workshops to the greatest personal loss of my entire life. Not knowing how to process the acute grief, I turned around and went back into the Gorge and stayed their in solitude for another month. During this time I often slept in the Eagle Creek area, in my vehicle and every day challenged myself to go farther and deeper into the Gorge than I ever had before (including spending nights in the forest). I have a large load of unprocessed files from that season, but I have not had the time this year to get to processing them. I am about to head off (in an hour) to a landscape summit (meet) of sorts, in the Gorge to meet up with about 25-35 of some of my favorite photographers of all time (a handful from FM will be there too). A lot of them newer blood, infiltrating our ranks with fresh, inspiring, and very creative work. I cant wait to meet them all! So, before I take off I just wanted to at least get one Gorge shot in.

This is a less commonly photographed waterfall up Moffett Creek. I was very inspired, refreshed and in some ways restored by going to some new places. There is nothing quite like hiking way in to a new place and being the only one there all day. Sometimes I would just sit and look and rest for hours not taking a single shot.

I hope you enjoy.

*Please feel free to give me suggestions, critique and or feedback. I genuinely love to keep learning. Also, the image is best viewed on a calibrated desktop monitor on Chrome, Safari or Firefox.

Thank you for looking.

I will be on the road the next two days, so SORRY if my responses are delayed!
