Mossbrae Falls is a beautiful and unique waterfall located in the Northern California town of Dunsmuir. It is approximately 50 feet high and 150 feet wide, and resembles a wall more than a traditional waterfall. Also unique is the access... a one-mile "hike" along the Union Pacific Railroad. Fortunately the trains do not run frequently along this stretch, which would be mildly disconcerting. Although I did my best to document it, frankly there is no way that ANY photograph could do this waterfall justice.

I discovered this stream when backpacking at Pamelia Lake in Oregon's Mount Jefferson Wilderness area. I had brought my Gorillapod rather than my customary (and much heavier) Manfrotto tripod, so it was a struggle for me to achieve a good vantage point because I was limited to 10 inches off the ground! Eventually I settled for this spot, set my exposure time for ten seconds, and hoped for the best.

When I got home, I was very pleasantly surprised at how well this turned out. The little Gorillapod managed to hold my camera steady so that the focus was completely crisp! But next time I will lug my regular tripod so that I will have more flexibility.

(Technical details: Nikon D70, Gorillapod SLR tripod, Nikon 12-24 mm lens, Hoya Circular Polarizer, f/22, 10 seconds.)

This is my favorite of the seasonal creeks crossing the Clackamas River Trail en route to Pup Creek Falls. The sun was a problem on this afternoon, so I waited patiently for nearly 20 minutes. Finally a cloud blocked the sun for all of 30 seconds, which was just long enough for me to fire off this shot.

Though many people visit Marys Peak, the tallest mountain in Oregon's Coast Range, almost none of them visit Parker Creek which drains from near the summit. It's one of my favorite "secret spots" -- although it is possible to drive to within a few feet of this vantage point, very few people know about it.

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

Located along the Clackamas River Trail in Oregon's Mount Hood National Forest, Pup Creek Falls drops over 200 feet in three tiers. It is one of my favorite waterfalls, because it is really three waterfalls in one... each of the tiers is very different. It requires nearly an 8 mile round-trip hike, but I think it is well worth the effort.

Although it is not listed in any waterfall books, this 30-foot waterfall is quite photogenic. It is very close to Picture Lake, and is right next to the road for extremely easy access. I took this shot slightly after sunset with very little ambient light, so I had to use a surprisingly long exposure (25 seconds). Because of the light conditions, I worked from the RAW file so that I could adjust the white balance after the fact.

During one of my frequent visits to Majestic Falls (at McDowell Creek County Park near Lebanon, Oregon), I was very lucky with the timing. There was just enough sun to create this rainbow, yet not so much as to ruin the exposure upon the water.

A steep hike leads away from the crowds of tourists and up to Fairy Falls. Although it is only 20 foot high, it is probably more photogenic than some of the other nearby (much higher) Gorge waterfalls.

Fairy Falls can look quite different during the winter:

National Creek Falls is fed by springs on Mount Mazama (Crater Lake) in Southern Oregon. I wanted to see it in person for a long time, and it did not disappoint.

Getting to this vantage point involved shimmying across the (deep and cold) creek on a slippery log. But it was well worth the effort.

It might not be the tallest waterfall in the world, but Whitehorse Falls is a nice example of the punchbowl form. It is located east of Roseburg, Oregon along the North Umpqua River. I got thoroughly sprayed, but managed to get one shot where the lens was dry.

Directions can be found at the "Thundering Waters" site.
