Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls 8
Bridal Veil Falls in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge is yet another easily accessible and often photographed gem along the Historic Columbia River Highway that parallels Interstate 84. More than most waterfalls, it requires soft light to really bring out its best features. The contrast in light is extreme at times between the upper falls, which is exposed to daylight, and the pool where the falls continues its trip downhill to the river. Fortunately, this morning was overcast and provided a nice warm hue to the scenes for long exposures, including the one above. (Tokina 11-16mm wide angle, 100 ISO, f/11, 0.8 second exposure).
