Panther Creek Falls in early spring after a very harsh winter that resulted in fallen trees and debris in vicinity.
A gorgeous sunrise atop Tom Dick and Harry Mountain looking out at Mt. Hood with fresh mid-April snow. One of the most grueling hikes I've done but most certainly worth it.
A beautiful evening of golden light at Cape Kiwanda quickly transitions into a dark and gloomy night, filled with rain and hail.
A beautiful late winter sunrise looking out at Mt. Hood from a small meadow and growing pond.

Looking north at Cape Kiwanda, Oregon during a beautiful evening filled with golden light.
Along the Gorton Creek Trail, a fairly quiet hiking area in the Columbia River Gorge, lies this small and intimate waterfall named Emerald Falls. Trees line the creek the entire way so it’s quite beautiful during autumn when fall colors are in full force and the leaves begin to fall. And although there were plenty of fallen leaves throughout the area, the one in this photo may or may not have landed perfectly on that rock after falling from my hand…
Mt. Hood looking quite majestic as the sun sets over a half way frozen Trillium Lake.
An unbelievable sunset illuminate crashing waves on the tip of Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City, Oregon.
Mt. Hood poking through the clouds on a beautiful winter sunrise atop Tom Dick & Harry Mountain.
First light hits Mt Jefferson and the surrounding snow covered trees as seen from Tom Dick and Harry Mountain near Mt. Hood.
The initial burn of an incredible winter sunrise and explosion of color at Crater Lake National Park.
After multiple attempts that all resulted in being fogged out, I was finally able to capture a beautiful sunrise at Tipsoo Lake in Mt. Rainier National Park on a brisk autumn morning.
A beautiful sunrise lights up the sky above Mt. Hood and nearby meadow on MLK Day, 2017.
Beautiful light throughout the Columbia River Gorge on an otherwise clear winter day.

The Milky Way Core as it passes over the iconic Mount St. Helens.
A misty and dreary morning at Falls Creek Falls, located near the Columbia River Gorge on the Washington side.
Another shot of a beautiful and foggy sunrise in Portland, looking out at the iconic St. John's bridge and Mt. Hood in the distance.
Panther Creek Falls, Washington.
A beautiful sunset at Trillium Lake, which is one of my favorite places to shoot.
After a 90 minute ride out to the lake on my motorcycle, I snapped this as my first exposure and then left 15 minutes later haha. Sometimes that's just how it goes though! If you're ever in Oregon/Washington and see someone speeding terribly on a black Triumph with a tripod towards a mountain or beautiful sunset, it's me...
An unbelievable display of light as the sun goes down at Tipsoo Lake, passing through clouds and fog, sending beams of light through the trees. The clouds provide a teasing view of Mt. Rainier in the distance.
Spirit Falls, located on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge, on a beautiful fall morning.
I titled this "Fall, Fell, Fallen" because of the beautiful fall colors, I fell and banged my knee while shooting there (which still hurts at the time of posting this) and I hate having to keep photograph that fallen tree that I wish would finally just slip down all the way.
Fall colors on display in the acres upon acres of tree farms in Boardman, Oregon.
Fall colors out in full force at the iconic Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.
After a very stormy week, the infamous log jam of Oneonta Gorge (located in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon) dammed small gorge, resulting in water levels as high as the jam itself (about 8-10ft tall as opposed to a few feet with normal levels). As a result, the only option was to shoot from atop the jam down the narrow gorge, catching the light at the end where the falls are located, and all the water dripping down from above along the way!
The beautiful Metlako Falls, located along the Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia River Gorge, on a foggy and rainy fall morning.
A foggy early fall morning at Trillium Lake blanketed Mt. Hood in clouds but left just enough visibility to reveal beautiful trees across the lake beginning to change color.
I've visited Tipsoo Lake in the Mt. Rainier National Park multiple times now, and just about every time I get a scene like this. Although fog and dreary nights can be nice from time to time, I think I would prefer to have some decent sunsets and sunrises every now and again. Thankfully, I got a decent clearing the following morning and actually saw the mountain for once! A rare treat to enjoy considering this scene the night before.
The lower portion of Panther Creek Falls, located near the Columbia River Gorge on the Washington side. The upper portion of Panther Creek is by far the most popular, and for good reason, as it's beautiful in its own right. The lower portion, however, boasts a very different nature and provides incredible depth as water makes it way down the multiple platforms of the falls.
Broken Top, Central Oregon. One of the few remaining indian paintbrush bushels clings on to the last few days of a short alpine summer, as the temperature drops and the stars begin to come out.
The glacial lake beneath Broken Top Mountain in central Oregon forms the beginning of a stream that flows down the hillside. Captured on an early fall evening after the sun has fallen behind the mountain, quickly moving clouds are illuminated to provide incredible soft light on the small stream.
