Spring 2011 - Volume 15 Number 2
Daniel Rappaport, MD
This photograph was taken in the summer of 2009. Oneonta Falls is only a few hundred yards
from the road, but an adventure to get to nonetheless, requiring traverse of a huge slippery log
jam and waist-deep wading in icy-cold water through the gorge. Oneonta is a narrow offshoot of
the Columbia Gorge. Landscape photography is classically best in early morning and late afternoon
light. In this case the best light was midday, filtered through the mist in the narrow canyon. I feel
lucky to have such an amazing visual resource as the Columbia Gorge within an hour of Portland.
