Ponytail Falls · Horsetail Creek · Columbia River Gorge · Dodson · Oregon · USA

Sometimes I forget how stir-crazy Oregonians get during the cold winter and wet early-spring doldrums. But we’re rather tough ol’ birds at the same time, and as soon as the rate of rainfall drops to less than an inch an hour, you can expect the Gorge parking lots to fill up faster than Walmart’s on Black Friday. So it was with a little bit of shock and dismay when, while on an entertaining hike with photog friends Steven Michael, Kay Martin, and Gulnara “GiGi” Peek, we returned to Ponytail Falls to find a throng of ogling spectators after having been turned back by trail crew clearing a landslide directly above the boot path to Upper Oneonta Falls. But who could blame them, really, when the falls traces such a graceful arc in the belly of a such a beautifully verdant canyon? I usually don’t care to include people or manmade objects in my landscapes if I can help it at all, but I figured this time I’d just go with the flow and resist the urge to Photoshop them out in post-production. I think they lend a dual sense of scale here rather nicely–both in terms of Ponytail’s beguiling size and its growing popularity with the locals.

Horsetail Falls Trail #438 · Columbia River Gorge · Dodson · Oregon · USA

Pacific forest moss- and licorice fern-flocked red alder flanking the zigzagging trail to Ponytail Falls seem to clamber relentlessly upwards in their determined quest for sunlight, raked even as they may be in the throes of a slow but graceful death.

Parallels in my line of work as a palliative care and hospice physician? Yeah, you might say that.

Artist: Aaron Reed Limited Edition Prints and Licensing information can always be found on my website at http://ift.tt/12VidRu A dreamy little scene captured from inside the cave at Ponytail Falls in the Columbia River Gorge last year. I had tried to capture a similar image before but never really cared for one without the fog and hints of fall color.
