I grew up near here. A kindness of fate. A place of quiet noise. Catching the colors of fall - quiet, and the roar of water - noise. But a good noise. Finding a place to sit, a stone. Looking around the bows and leaves, the water looks cool and refreshing following a path cut eons before me - perhaps you also can hear it - a feeling of peace.

A beautiful photo of both the tree and the waterfall. The column of water makes a perfect backdrop for the wonderfully colorful tree with its graceful arching branches.

amazing picture! I'm not ready for the fall colors yet, happily enjoying the summer but I do like them a lot. The composition with the waterfall behind the tall trees is excellent, very well taken.
Wish you a happy week

Beautiful presentation of the waterfall. Vivid colours and nice composition with the tree in the foreground and the wispy water tumbling down behind it. Indeed a peaceful place.

Great shot. The water behind works well. I appreciate what you have said and told others, which I AGREE, the trees make the peace while the water has some undefined mission. Similar to what you have already stated. Good work,

tre colori per un bellissimo risultato, la cascata da anche dinamicitÓ all'immagine e mi piace molto il colore caldo degli alberi.

Wow! The second Oregon waterfalls for me today. I used to live in Portland while working in Hood River. Awesome drive along Columbia River and by Bridal Veil Falls. Love the northwest. Nice capture of this falls through fall colors. Very well done, tfs.

a shot that has the wow! factor. Simple elements but brought together both appealingly and beautifully. Nature at its finest and a capture that does it full justice. Well done!
Have a good week - Brian.

So beautiful colors of this tree with the waterfall as background. Nice composition!

Excellent combination view of the autumn colors and the Multnomah background in full blast.
And I note for future Autumn colors visits your capture date of November 10th. Too often 'fall color experts' report the peak is early October.
On a surprising side note, I just read eons ago the Columbia River meandered through your Silver Falls State Park.
PS: I wrote my senior paper on Thomas E. Lawrence required to graduate with a history degree from the Calif State University at Los Angeles. Which became a factor with State government seeking me for a transportation agent/analyst career later.

Great Image, an awesome place by the looks of it, you have handled the source of light very well there with good use of shutter speed. The light through the trees lighting up those cracking colours very well whilst maintaining good balance of exposure on the falling water behind. Lovely autumnal image with a warm feel to the overall image. Very well done shot, Congrats.

Wonderful nature picture!
I specially enjoyed the colors, the management of light and the lovely composition with that tree with yellowish leaves and that waterfall!
TFS - congrats,

Really beautiful, the golden leaves of the tree with the waterfall behind it. Very well framed, I like it! You were really lucky to grow up near such place, it seems really wonderful!
