“It was late one afternoon in the Columbia River Gorge when I randomly decided it was time to find the infamous “Mossy Grotto Falls”. Hearing that it was some what hard to find I set out on the adventure. After an hour or two of hiking / scrambling which included a few wrong turns and some nasty falls I emerged on the falls caked in mud. This place is just awesome especially at 7pm when the light is perfect and no one is around. I explored the area for a bit, took 10 or 15 different compositions and got out of there as the sun dropped below the horizon.”

    This shot feels like I’ve been transplanted to Lord of the Rings in a fantasy so beautiful that the rest of the world disappears. Thanks Dave Morrow!
