Photography and photojournalism in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest

The Rush of the Gorge

Multnomah Creek-2

Does anyone else run out of interesting, yet descriptive names for landscape photos? This image shows Multnomah Creek just below Dutchman Falls. It can be found less than a half-mile from where Multnomah Falls pours 600 feet over a rock ledge to the Columbia River below, and  it’s one of the most beautiful spots on the entire creek.

The three mini-cascades team up to form a powerful current that is actually pretty brisk when you’re standing in its midst. Friend and fellow photographer Gary Meyers and I enjoyed a recent morning on this creek and came away with a portable hard drive’s worth of nice images, thanks to the perfect shooting conditions. This past week has been prime waterfall shooting weather in Oregon, and I’d like to think we took full advantage of it.

Thanks for viewing!

    Hi Josh,
    Beautiful picture again! Does the Dutchman fall have any connection with a Dutchman and if so, do you know a name?

    • Hi Nony, I have no idea if there is an actual Dutchman involved with this waterfall. Your question makes me curious to find out more, though.
