Silver Falls

We decided to make a quick trip to Silver Falls after work, and some unplanned traffic had us arriving at Silver Falls State Park at 7pm, exactly one hour before the park closed. A few side benefits of arriving late were complete lack of other people on the trail, as well as one heck of a sunset.

Multnomah Falls, again

It seems like every so often a drive down the Columbia River Gorge sounds like a sure bet for good photos (and a nice hike!). No matter the weather, there are always beautiful scenes to shoot.

I have enough “classic” shots of the main falls, so here are some “off trail” shots that turned out great!

And what would Multnomah falls be without a ginormous hotdog?

Gaylord Opryland

While on a business trip at Gaylord Opryland Resort and ConventionCenter, in Nashville, TN.

Under majestic, climate-controlled glass atriums, you’ll be surrounded by nine acres of lush indoor gardens, winding rivers and pathways, and sparkling waterfalls where you can unwind, explore, shop, dine, and be entertained to your heart’s content. Highlights include a 44-foot waterfall, laser-light and fountain shows, and tours aboard our Delta Flatboats – right inside the hotel.

During the day, ALOT of people were constantly wandering around (ruiningshots!), and the overcast skyprovided pretty flat light through the hugeglass ceiling. Things changed at night, however ;) . These pictures were taken in DARK areas with long exposure times. What made this even more tricky was my lack of a tripod ;) .
