I finally made the epic 3 hour (and some change) voyage to Panther Creek this weekend and it was definitely worth it, but man talk about tough shooting conditions! Intense spray accompanied by almost direct sunlight with scattered clouds. This photo was a rough one to put together; lots of multiple exposure blending, it didn’t turn out too bad though. All in all 7 hours of driving and several hours of post processing for one photo…. yikes haha, the things we do for photography.

I still have a few comps from my last visit to Panther Creek Falls last year. Was looking forward to get back down there to reshoot this with my 14-24, but as chance would have it, I may be laid out for a bit.

Getting here is pretty straight forward and easy. Scale a 7 foot “cliff”, complete with handholds and rope, BUT doing it with one good arm will be interesting. I may attempt this in the coming months.

In any case, there is room for improvement on this comp, but I like this one. My hotshoe of the D700 was literally dug into the log, and I am standing 2 feet below this view (on the lower cascade). Literally I didn’t even see what I was shooting. Makes the fun factor go through the roof 🙂

Find out tomorrow if I need surgery on my shoulder. Gonna be rough, regardless. Be careful out there everyone. I have slipped 1.45 million times in the creeks, but just takes one wrong move..

To my 8 devoted followers, I thank you for the comments! Stay safe!

Lower Panther Falls. Unbelievable cold water… and it was august. I have no idea why this water was as cold as it was. I had been to other waterfalls in the area, but on the Oregon side of the gorge. Feet completely numb. And I had neoprene socks on! An enjoyable morning, and a shot that I really love, despite thinking it wasn’t worth anything from when I took it up until sometime last week when I decided to give it the time of day. The sexiness of the foreground ripples kept calling to me. They’d say, ‘Teeeddddd, TEEDDDDDDDD… processs meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee’. Time for bed.
