Shot Notes

With it’s sheer beauty and it’s proximity and easy accessibility from Portland, Eagle Creek remains one of my favorite hikes in the Columbia River Gorge. I’ve had a completely different experience everytime I’ve gone, and this day was no exception. Even without much sun that day, it was still gorgeous. One can get a pretty good taste of it by only walking in 2-3 miles and then turning around, but it only gets more and more beautiful the further one hikes in. I got kind of a late start this day, so I went 3 miles in to the high bridge, a 200′ suspension bridge over a narrow canyon, had lunch and then turned around. I thought I ended up getting some pretty decent photos. I processed all of them with a black and white conversion program from Nik Software called Silver Efex Pro. It’s got some nice featuers to it and interfaces nicely with Lightroom, but I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to buy it once my trial run ends.
