Wahfalla by NWunseen
As usual, fall time in the Northwest called for a trip to the Columbia Gorge. We were a bit early this year but was better than being late last year! A wonderful rainy morning lead us to this scene at Wahclella Falls.

2016 by NWunseen
new friends and new family and the many great aspects that were brought out from both were my highlights of 2015. It was a great year and I hope that it was for you. But now we say goodbye and welcome a new year where I wish you the best and hope all that you desire comes true! Cheers to you and 2016 :)

LA and I met up with some friends for a week long excursion around Oregon. Out of the many many trips I've made to the Oregon Coast, I've never had such great displays of light..never really had any displays except for some dense fog! This one from Seal Rocks was not the best display we had that week but a lot of elements came together nicely. A big thanks to :iconlalight:, :iconchadrouthier: and :icono0oluxo0o: for making the journey, the good times and bringing their good luck charms for some good sunset shows.

As always..better viewing is done with a dark background. go here for that view

Thanks for the views, clicks and comments..hope everyone is well!

Tank by NWunseen
hey all..been a while! Lots of changes over the last half a year but things have been well..just trying to find time for everything has gotten tougher. With the winter upon us here in the Pacific NW, daylight is shorter but somehow time for things has lengthened!  Enough sentimentality..on to the pic..

I had heard of the Necklace Valley and had it on my back burner list of places to see for over a year. Those hearings included the valley itself full of its wonderful meadows and lakes. Then I saw an image posted by another Northwest photographer, Jeremy Duncan, and learned the real reason to go to the Necklace get to the trails end and scramble up to the granite playlands and the plethora of alpine lakes that lay above. My main destination beyond the trails end was Tank Lakes after seeing Jeremy's shot. Any and every trip report you read on accessing this area is true..its grueling! I'm not ashamed to say it took me almost 10 hours to do the 10 miles up to this place, the last two miles would have been shorter if I'd gone with instinct instead of following the hundreds of misleading cairns. Upon reaching the top of a ridge that I don not believe has a name, one of the best views I've witnessed in the Cascade Range came into site..the stunning peaks of Summit Chief Mountain, Chimney Rock West and Overcoat Peak. A quick scramble down to Lower Tank Lakes was where I found my place for the night. With hours before sunset, I explored the area. Was noticeable once again on my travels how low the snowpack was this year as Lower Tank Lake was half capacity and Upper Tank was completely dry. I rested for some time after exploring and watched the clouds move in..of course they moved in enough to cloak the view i had gone up there for. But as any landscape shot story goes..mother nature treated me well as soon as the sunset, revealing that view I had hoped for, with an amazing sunset display and a magnificent dance performed by the clouds..all ending with a thick fog coming up from the valley once again cloaking the scene as if nothing happened. 
Being a hike where anything to save weight is welcomed..I was a buffoon and left the telephoto at home. Though I wish I could have had some intricate shots of the dancing clouds around the peaks, I was very happy with coming down with a panoramic view of my one night backyard. The way down took me little more than half the time it took me up if you wondered!

Though this was my second year in a row to visit the Suislaw National Forest in spring, I decided to take a different but more common and "easier" route deep into the forest. Even after researching the directions for days, I had to cross my fingers during a couple miles while in the maze of logging roads hoping i was going the right way. Some definite white knuckle action on some parts of the logging roads, especially with the thick fog we encountered before getting above it, but well worth the effort to once again find one of my favorite locations in Oregon. The trail itself with its fern blanketed floors and old growth firs towering around is worth the trip, but the 100 foot waterfalls encountered out here make it extraordinary.
