A half hour from home…

the Columbia River Gorge is just breaking free of its fifth ice storm. Normally this is a great view of the Crown Point & the Vista House from Chanticleer Point…a few days ago the ice and wind still made a stable shot difficult.

Frozen in time…

Columbia River Gorge, or as locals call it the Gorge. A small waterfall along the ‘Scenic Hiway’ (the old road up the Gorge before the I-84 freeway was constructed)

Momentarily frozen…

one of many small, unnamed waterfalls tumbling (frozen this day) over the cliffs of the Gorge into ponds, lakes and wetlands that all empty into the Columbia River, on the Oregon side.

“Palisades, Columbia River” This 1880s scene captured by Frank J. Haynes, official photographer for the Union Pacific Railroad. Crown Point (then called “Thor’s Heights”) and its lacy waterfall are the backdrop for what was known as Echo Bay in the early days of settlement.

Classic Gorge

As an Oregonian, I have seen a multitude of images of the Columbia River Gorge. A classic shot is the Vista House on Crown Point taken from the West near the Women’s Forum Park. It gives scale to the Vista House and the Gorge (Columbia River Gorge).

Photography by Joe Berentsen: Ruckel Creek

My good friend and photography colleague Joe Berentsen is enjoying exploring the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side (Ruckel Creek). Joe is particularly inspired, as many of us are, by those tumbling waters that create lovely waterfalls and lush vignettes. Here are a couple of examples of his work. I hope to be able to share more along the way as Joe explores the byways.
