Photographer's Note

Horsetail Falls lies directly on the Old Columbia River Historic highway on the Oregon side of the Gorge. I have found that this falls is one of the hardest to capture due that the light is always either behind the ridgeline or in your face near sunset and so far away in the summer that the light does not lend itself to the scene. In this scene you will see the shadow cast from the fallen tree across the opening of the treeline. In certain scenes as this, it may not be the waterfall that is the most important, but its surroundings once you allow a slice of the falls to be seen.
Happy New Year to All...
