Multnomah Falls, Autumn Study by greglief Multnomah Falls, Autumn Study by greglief
Thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery! Faves, comments, collecting, and recommendations are always appreciated. Please respect my work by not printing, selling, or reposting it.

Ah yes... Multnomah Falls. At 620 feet, it is the tallest in Oregon and third tallest year-round waterfall in the United States. And how many waterfalls have their own exit on an Interstate highway? ;)

This photo is from last October because I was not thrilled with this year's substandard fall color display. My visit was a few days early judging by the leaves on the right side of the frame, but the leaves on the left side more than made up for that. I shot as wide as possible to include the leaves and log in the lower foreground.

(Technical details: Nikon D90, Manfrotto 190PROB tripod, Nikon 12-24mm lens, Hoya Circular Polarizer, f/11, 1.3 seconds.)

It looks a bit different during winter:

The height is usually listed as either 620 feet or 627 feet. I guess Multnomah Lodge wanted to tack on a few extra feet, not that they need to. :D

The yellow tree really stands out in the photo, but the scene as a whole makes me think of a film set. for some fantasy movie.

I didn't even have to look at the title. I'll always know this waterfall when I see it. My family used to drive past it on road trips to visit my aunt in Portland. We pulled off the highway a few times for a closer look. Never for as long as I would have liked.

This picture really does a good job of capturing the feeling of fall in the Pacific Northwest. There's the grey of stone, water, and sky juxtaposed with the seasonally bright yellow and perennially deep green. Everything looks wet, which is likely true. Even if it's not from the frequent fall rains, the spray from the falls would be enough to mist everything around it.

I went to see this with my family. It's such a beautiful place. You captured it very well. This shot is absolutely gorgeous. I saw it in the Summer but I have to say, it's much more beautiful in the Fall!
