Happy Waterfall Wednesday! This is my playground, Boulder Creek. I call this spot the Punchbowl. In a way it reminds me of a smaller Punchbowl Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.
Well the Pineapple Express breezed in to Oregon today effectively rinsing clean any residual from last nights ice storm. The temperature went from 34 degrees to 44 degrees in a matter of an hour this morning.
I hope that everyone is have a great day.

Taken at Cloud Cap Inn at 6000' on the north side of Mount Hood.
The third of the series of shots of last evening's sunset over Portland, Oregon.
I've wanted this shot for a long time, meaning a still river and a sunset over Portland from this location. I have night shots and some pretty plain day shots, but this is the light that I've been looking for.
Yeah, I know it's a goose but the ducks weren't there trying to get into my shot. : )
I would move to the right and the geese would move to the right, I would move to the left and they would move to the left. It would be fine if they would stop moving and pose. : )
Portland, Oregon across the Willamette River.
This was taken this evening after I left the book signing at Powell's Books, which went well considering the video and slide program that Jon and I had prepared wouldn't work on their projection machine.
It was well attended and I was able to meet some friends that I had yet to meet including my great Flickr contact Ian Sane. : ) I was really glad to finally get to meet him. Thanks Kurt!
Another surprise was one of my photographic idols came to the event. I was thrilled to meet long time Portland, Oregon photographer Hugh Ackroyd. This is a man that was a contemporary with some of my other photographic influences including Ray Atkeson. Hugh has been in the photography business that long. He's 96 years old now. : ) Hugh decided that he should have his Wake before he kicked off. You can read about it and a little of his background in this article.
I hope that everyone had a great weekend. : )
