Fall is such a wonderful time to tour Oregon. If you time it just right, you'll be back home before the snows strand you somewhere, the rains are still light and you can enjoy every aspect of a countryside that's in brilliant transition. Recently, I had the opportunity to travel the length of the Columbia River, her south shore and some of her tributary waterways. Naturally, my cameras were working incessantly so I'm pleased to share some of the images I created here.
These are specifically of the area where the Columbia River meets the Hood River, a small tributary which has its origins in the snow melts of Mount Hood to the south. All of these photos were taken with my iPhone 4 camera, then post-processed as needed with two amazing photo rendering apps: Camera+ and Snapseed.
Used wisely, the results can be evocative, powerful, memorable. Enjoy this taste of Fall in Oregon!
