This is an image from an early season backpacking trip to Jefferson Park several weeks ago with my buddy Jordan Ek. It was a completely moonless night and the stars were absolutely amazing. There was no light pollution at this location, which is an added bonus for central/western Oregon.
Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you have. I really appreciate everyone taking the time to share their thoughts on the image.

Falls Creek Falls · Falls Creek · Gifford Pinchot National Forest · Carson · Washington · USA
A rare view of the always awe-inspiring Falls Creek Falls from its egress through Volkswagen-sized boulders and snarls of downed trees downstream. My brotog TJ Thorne unwittingly provides some sense of scale here, standing smack-dab in the middle of the spray zone fronting the 60-foot-tall lowest of three tiers. He’s not just a fellow photographer–one of the hardest-working dudes I know–but a true friend, and our views on life are more often similar than not. I’m pretty sure I speak for both of us when I say that being out in nature, free from the confines of human constructs physical, political, and philosophical and well away from the business of bean-counting and bureaucratizing, is more than just a pastime for us: It’s a soul-fueling necessity. Here, the office walls are draped with lichen and mosses and ferns, the ceiling is limitless, and deadlines, discord, and derisiveness dissolve away in spring-fed streams.

“An interesting story that someone told me once is that in Belfast, by what street someone lives on you can tell not only their religion but tell how much money they’re making — literally by which side of the road they live on, because the further up the hill the more expensive the houses become. You can almost tell what the people are earning by the name of the street they live on and what side of that street they live on. That said something to me, and so I started writing about a place where the streets have no name….”

Upon opening the files from the 1Ds, I realized what a ^$&ing dust magnet it was. If there is an action in photoshop to remove 1.3K dust bunnies from files, I’m all ears. I actually bracketed for this comp, which helps because the files fall apart rather easily.
Anyways, expecting to get light like this again in fields of pristine flowers, as far as the eye can see and no mosquitoes. 🙂 I’m working on a new website that will have some new stuff on there, incase anyone cares 🙂
