Riverflow At Dusk
Photograph - Photographs, Photography, Photograph
This photo of the McKenzie River was taken with a tripod to capture the dusk light and the flow of the water. I love the way water looks with a long exposure.
The McKenzie River is a 90 mile tributary of the Willamette River in Oregon. It originates from Clear Lake, in the high cascades of the Willamette National Forest. For 8000, McKenzie River was home to native americans who spent their summers in the high cascades. The area it now runs through is sparsely populated. 96% of the area is considered forest with 4% being used for agricultural purposes. The river is the source of drinking water for the 200,000 residents of Eugene and Springfield, OR.

Nature, animals, beauty have been a source of nourishment throughout my life. Photography allows me to capture, interpret, and share that world of wonder I see about me, and sometimes use what I capture as an inspiration to create something new, by incorporating other exposures, textures or brushwork.
I currently reside in Oregon, an environment rich in nature's graces. I have lived in California and New York, too, and everywhere there is a world of beauty around us, if we care to take the time and look for it.
