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

Not many people get to see the springs up the hill from Proxy Falls, because there is no trail leading to them. In fact, I'll wager that this may be the first (and perhaps the last) time that you ever see a photo of them. Full View recommended for better appreciation of all that green mossy goodness. :)

(Technical details: Nikon D90, Manfrotto 190CXPRO3 tripod, Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX lens, B+W Circular Polarizer, f/11, 2.5 seconds)

If you enjoy this photo, please take a few moments to visit my Waterscapes gallery.

This is one view of nearby Proxy Falls:

If this is the last time this scene is to be photographed, then what a wonderful capture it is. Though I think this would also be a magnificent sight in the winter (if Proxy Falls isn't tropical; I'm not sure what part of the world it's in), though I'd imagine getting there would be monumentally more difficult if it did get cold enough to freeze.

It might be the first and last time. Although a fair number of people visit Proxy Falls (though only a tiny fraction of the people who visit other Oregon waterfalls such as Multnomah), I am not aware of any other people who have visited Proxy Springs. I agree with you that it would be MUCH more difficult to visit during the winter, as is Proxy Falls. For one thing, the road leading to the trailhead is closed during the winter due to snow, so it would involve an additional 6+ mile hike (probably with snowshoes).

That... would be intense, I can only imagine. However, if that area gets that much snow, the view just might not be worth it. Snow is pretty and all, but if that's the only thing you're getting a picture of, it'd be easier to just take a picture off the road, right? :XD: (Except for the obvious achievement of photographing that specific place.)
