    Time for another waterfall day :)

    Wahkeena Falls in the Columbia River Gorge is actually a set of waterfalls with several levels of drop-offs. This is the middle section of the falls as seen from the trail that passes just in front of the falls. There is another narrow set of falls above this scene but it's really only visible when you are directly below the middle falls and not as photogenic as the rest of the complex of falls.


    Pile on with your own falling water scenes......

    Thanks for starting this Alan, very nice kick off.

    Here is one from Glacier, this is one of the many waterfalls found along McDonald creek.

    Two different falls from me. The first, Aira Force, a local Cumbrian one. It had been raining for sevearl days and the river was high coming over this 66ft doubble drop. Last week Monica commented upon the brown colour of Scottish rivers, this is caused by peat dissolved in the water turning it brown. If you fill a bottle with this water it is clear, not muddy and like most wilderness areas totally unpoluted but always a chance of a dead animal upstream. The Aira force water is different, brown and very muddy and definitely not "see through".

    This next image is another shot of Bracklinn Falls in central Scotland.

    This is likely to be my last waterfall for a while as I am off to Northern Scotland to take photographs while my wife spends a week at a traditional Scottish fiddle workshop. Ken

    Paulina Falls in Central Oregon on one of the few dry days I had on that trip.

    Thanks for all your suggestions, Alan. They were all great. And I didn't have to think! I was impressed at how many '70s hippies there still are in Central Oregon.....mixed in with the very "red" presence just a little east, buffered by all the industrial hemp farms! But Oregon has been like that for a long time.

    Come back in early July and head farther west for the Oregon Country Fair and you will almost be looking around to see if Ken Kesey is there with Further. Eugene never really left the 70's behind.

    When I liven in Eugene in the late '70's I had friends who were Kesey's neighbors. He wasn't exactly friendly with any of his neighbors, preferring privacy and curmudgeonliness.
