Mist Dance

Abiqua Falls, Oregon

FINE ART LIMITED EDITION OF 100

Direct light illuminates mist that’s being generated by Abiqua Falls.

Abiqua Falls is one of my favorite waterfalls. I remember learning about it many years ago, in the early 2000’s. I never made it a priority to visit and lost the chance to when I moved back to the east coast for a few years.

When I returned to Oregon, I finally made the trip and I can recall the goosebumps that I felt when I got near and could see part of the basalt amphitheater and hear the thunderous roar of the falls hitting the splash pool. I stood there in that spot, feeling that moment and that energy before I took a few more steps to where I could take in the scene as a whole.

Interestingly, I have more shots from this waterfall location that are of subjects other than the waterfall itself. Although this waterfall has gotten extremely popular since that time, I’m always excited to visit because despite the people and having been there dozens and dozens of times, I am always finding new things to photograph and explore.

This waterfall starts getting hit with direct light around 11 AM during the spring. It’s a large amphitheater and if one were there to photograph the scene as a whole, they would have a difficult time on clear days. The waterfall itself usually stays in the shadows, but just past the edge of the cliff face that the water falls from, the light becomes harsh.

Having been here so many times, I have shot the scene in this image on several occasions. The plunge of the waterfall is wide and thick and hits the splash pool with a thunderous energy, throwing mist into the air. The sun illuminates this mist as it continuously swirls and dances through the air. It’s an element in the scene that always calls to me and one that I always spend time with.
