Project Smooth I drove past this a few times and wanted to capture it. Finally the conditions lined up so I spread my tripod almost flat, to get that perfect angle, and it paid off. Smooth water, flat color, and an active sky are all things I enjoy. There is something humble about this picture. Each little branch of this waterfall is mesmerizing. Long Exposures of waves always leads to some interesting looking water. You should see the rock I was standing on for this. The Madison River makes a fantastic subject at almost every point, but I have to ask, how did that boulder get there? Move your eyes across Cobble Beach and focus on the fading city of Newport, Oregon as it becomes ever-consumed by clouds. The sun rising over this creek in Yellowstone produces beautiful colors that dance across the tree tops. The giant spikes of rock rising out of the ocean create a dramatic scene. The emerald green water is an even better sight in person. Sometimes you have to put yourself in dangerous places to get the shot you really want. The haze of the Oregon Coast is definitly a sight to see, along with the unusual sound the rocks of this beach make after every wave. I have personally never seen a waterfall bigger than this one in the “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.” Mornings in Yellowstone are often misty, it’s an enjoyable sight. Most of the time rest-stops don’t offer much of a view but this one was something special. Behold the Snake River. Taken from the base of Yaquina Head lighthouse. It was a particularly cloudy day. A cool spring morning in Yellowstone lead to this slightly misty scene. Somewhere deep within the forests of Oregon lies this scene, slow and sureal. The water flows over rocks, pouring off after each wave. The Sawtooth mountains stand majestically over the canal. Sometimes a telephoto lense is good for landscape photography.
