Inside Metlako Falls - Oregon (Vertical)

Limited Edition Lumachrome of only 10 images.

Story: Just before the viewpoint fell and the wildfire hit the area, I spent about 2 years and many failed attempts to get down into the bowl of Metlako Falls at both the peak of spring green and higher river levels. Finally, the third year I found a way! Camping in the canyon and having the area to entirely to myself has been one of the most memorable moments in my photo career thus far. I will never forget it! I did two more trips into the bowl just before the changes hit the area. This is a ROARING 100+ foot (30+meters) waterfall and the noise was so loud I had to wear earplugs!
