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.

New on 500px : Meteora Monasteries by DrougoutisPhotography by DrougoutisPhotography

‘Suspended in the air’ (the meaning of Meteora in Greek). These monasteries represent a unique artistic achievement and are one of the most powerful examples of the architectural transformation of a site into a place of retreat, meditation and prayer. The area includes forested hills and river valley with riverine forests of Platanus.

Lower Lewis River Falls · Lewis River · Gifford Pinchot National Forest · Cougar · Washington · USA

A warm midsummer’s day ends with a spectacular bang as the sky explodes in a kaleidoscope of sunset colors above always-amazing Lower Lewis River Falls. I’ve seen some pretty righteous sunset shots from this location before, but invariably they’re shot from the top of the falls looking toward the light, rather than from downstream and in the opposite direction as it is here. In fact, in the full-resolution image you can see a photographer with his tripod set up at the top left corner of the falls shooting in my direction. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if it was someone I know through Facebook…and perhaps has since de-friended me for getting in his shot… 🙂

South Sister and Broken Top from Sparks Lake · Deschutes National Forest · Bend · Oregon · USA

Parched driftwood languishes on the shores of Sparks Lake like some mastodon tusk from a bygone ice age, watching as a cloudless sky ushers in the day in the chill of a late October morning–as if I needed further evidence of my sucky cloud mojo. Still, the beauty and serenity of the lake cannot be denied regardless of the lack of dramatic atmospheric conditions.

Mossy Grotto Falls · Ruckel Creek · Columbia River Gorge · Bonneville · Oregon · USA

Exceptionally low flow on Ruckel Creek brought a rare opportunity for a long-coveted reflection shot of the falls, lending added serenity to the verdant glen of Mossy Grotto Falls.

New on 500px : Light from the Sky by Bsam by Bsam

A stormy sunset with wild lupine flowers. This image recalls my memory of the fresh, cold breeze from the distance mountain. On the other side of the mountain is the great pacific ocean. Such moments like this only last briefly.

I’m appreciated for your constructive comments. Thank you for your support.
