If I were a fairy or water nymph, this is where I would want to spend my days. I would leap from the ledge and land in that beautiful blue green pool. I ‘d spend some time, day dreaming of unicorns and fairy princes and when I was hungry, I’d use my powers to manifest smores. This spot just screams enchantment and I had a difficult time leaving. I would have liked to see it at sunrise or sunset, or even with snow covering the trees. This spot would be beautiful even in the rain. But for now, it is my magic place and I can picture what ever I want and that is why they call it imagination, I suppose!

“Toketee Falls is one of the most famous waterfalls in all of Oregon, renowned far and wide for the graceful columnar basalt formation framing the two-stepped falls. The North Umpqua River has carved a sinuous gorge out of the lava flow, resulting in a waterfall of 113 feet in height – a 28 foot upper tier which plunges into a pool flanked by a deep alcove, followed by an 85 foot plunge into a large pool. At the trailhead, the wooden 12 foot diameter Toketee Pipeline is passed, which diverts much of the volume of the North Umpqua River to a powerhouse downstream. This artificial taming of the river allows the waterfall to flow in an extremely consistent manner all year long.”

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
