Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Oregon has been in a deep freeze for a week (20º F or less). I finally wrapped myself up and ventured out. I’m glad I did. I took a drive to one of my closest and favoritest waterfalls…

Willamette Nat’l Forest, Oregon (USA)

I have been shooting photos for 50 years and find it as challenging now as when I first began as a kid. Thanks for stopping by… I do assignment work (writing and photography) or would love a well paying, full time, permanent gig!

    Wow, that’s amazing, Allan. Is the river (?) which feeds the waterfall frozen over completely? Thanks for wrapping yourself up and braving the cold, I’ve never seen anything like this – lovely light.

  • Actually the river (the Middle Fork of the Willamette R) wasn’t frozen at all. Had me worried that maybe the waterfall hadn’t frozen, but no worries, check the pic I just posted! And as always, thanks for the kind words.
