Hello all! It's been a while... Sorry for the long pause in posting. Life has definitely been interesting lately, making it next to impossible to get some entries up. The good news is, I think I can make up for it with this post & the next few.

Over 4th of July weekend, my husband and I were blessed to have the opportunity to visit some friends in Portland, Oregon. I had been there one other time for work, but this was the first time we had gone there together as a vacation. The sights were absolutely spectacular and I got some beautiful shots.

Here are a couple of my favorites from the waterfalls we visited along the Columbia River Gorge. I enjoyed playing with slower shutter speeds to smooth out the pouring water (which were CRAZY intense with all the rain they've had lately).

Check out some of my other waterfall shots.
