    I've been sitting around the house too much lately and needed to get out and do something. Just so happens there was a break in the wet weather we've been having up here in the Pacific Northwest so I grabbed my gear and headed out to the falls along I84.

    First stop, Portland Womens Forum State park for some pictures of the Vista House.

    Tried my best with these next two, but I really need to invest in a good ND filter. Even at ISO 100 and f/8 - f/18 shutter speeds still less than one second. Even in this gloomy weather under a dense tree canopy.

    Started raining again after I got back. When will it stop? :dash2:
