Looking down from McCall Point Trail by greglief Looking down from McCall Point Trail by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery. Faves and comments are always appreciated! Also, I invite you to download this image to use as desktop wallpaper. Please respect my work by not printing, selling, or reposting it.

Tom McCall Point is in the eastern Columbia River Gorge. In early May the balsamroot and lupine display attracts hundreds of visitors. This photograph was taken facing north, downhill toward Rowena Plateau (see thumbnail below). The Washington hills are visible on the other side of the Columbia River. On a clear day you can also see Mount Adams.

NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.

(Technical Notes: Nikon D90, Nikon 18-200mm lens, circular polarizer, f/6.3, 1/250 second -- unfortunately there was a lot of wind so I was not able to use a smaller aperture, but I think it still turned out alright)

That's always a perk! I'm not much of a traveler myself(even though I'm fairly close - being in OR), which is probably part of why it's so awesome to see these pics.

In that case, don't rely upon my (or anyone's) photos... all these places are MUCH better in real life. :D

I would certainly hope so! I just don't have a lot of opportunity to see them lately. So a picture is better than nothing!
