Pacific Northwest is blessed with some of the most beautiful and diverse expanses of nature. Let’s explore some of the most fabulous spots in the Pacific Northwest, the perfect playground for a landscape photographer.
Thunder over Rome Station, Oregon
Rome Station is a high desert in Jordan Valley in the Southeastern part of Oregon. You may all agree that I was in the right place at the right time for this beautiful picture.
So what is Rome Station? It is an old-style US cafe that serves classic American cuisine like burgers and fries. It is located on the 95 highway near the geological landmark, Pillars of Rome.
Waterfalls in Columbia River Gorge
The Pacific Northwest is full of awe-inspiring waterfalls and I am one lucky guy to live close to Columbia River Gorge as it has the greatest concentration of waterfalls in North America so you really are spoilt for choice.
Located 48km east of Portland, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area is the largest and most well-known National Scenic Area, visited by approximately 2 million people annually. As well as photographers, the area is popular with hikers, windsurfers, kiteboarders, and people frequenting the many wineries.
Wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest
Thanks to the weather in the Pacific Northwest, we get rewarded with a beautiful array of native wildflowers across the mountains, valleys, and lining the lake edges. You can capture some particularly stunning shots with Mount Hood both at sunset and sunrise.
