There is something about falling water that is just so tranquil that I can just sit and zone out for hours looking and listening to the song the water makes as it crashes over the rocks. Many millennia of falling water has carved and sculpted that central rock into a really interesting shape that showcases the ribbons of water flowing over its surface. This was taken in the Columbia Gorge last fall.


Should really be viewed on black, click the flickr (external link) link to do so.

I miss those days where you could go there and just zone out. Now that EVERYONE has decided to move here, it's no better than a trip to a crowded shopping mall during Christmas. You can go on a rainy week day off season, doesn't matter = MASSES of people. So I basically just gave up on most all landscape photography because of the hostile takeover Portland has undergone, and taken up bird photography. A lot more respectful crowd that doesn't pepper you with camera questions, and a lot less of people trying to take the same exact photo as you are, then sizing up your camera/lens.

None the less, great image, it's just frustrating for the ones that grew up here to watch an area get loved to death, and the forest service has basically no budget anymore for trail upkeep, and the people in general don't respect staying on trail. The "rules don't apply to me, I'm special" crowd has ruined the experience even if you're not even there to photograph but just want to zone out/take it all in.

So if you're thinking about moving here, expect to sit in traffic, and expect this as your typical weekend, not the pristine well done image above:

Yeah, I hear you. I've been to Oneonta a few times and have never seen more than a handful of people there, but that was in early spring and fall (and early in the day), never in the summer . That's pretty insane in your attached photo. And while I have never seen more than 5 or so people at Panther Creek Falls, the delicate moss on the upper falls has been trashed by people walking all over it.

On the other hand, when I visited the Gorge last fall I also went to three other falls and didn't see a soul at two of them and only 3 people at the other one (Falls Creek Falls). When I was hiking in to FCF with my wife, I saw a guy coming towards us hiking out by himself, in a suit and tie. I whispered to my wife, "Look at this guy!". When he got to us he said, "You're a little under dressed, don't you think", and laughed as went on his way. I thought it was pretty funny and realized once we actually got to the falls why he had a suit on. There was a couple there in wedding attire who had just been married by the gentleman who was hiking out :)

Looks dreadful. You are not alone. I know this is going somewhat astray from the purpose of this thread, but this just happened today - forecast was for a high of 95 in Denver, so I drove up to an accessible mountain pass near Denver to beat the heat, it was packed, parking lot was full, road lined with cars, people everywhere (although much more widely dispersed than your photo), seemingly each person with 2 or 3 dogs. I think the great outdoors is becoming more popular, I suspect due to the much wider dissemination of information made possible by the internet - people can see what's out there now on their computer. Of course, as one of those people that is making it crowded, I don't suppose we can exempt ourselves, but yeah, I miss the less crowded good old days. (if you work hard enough at it, you can still beat the crowds, but it takes some work)

I was there about an hour before sunrise. I was the 3rd photog to set up, and within 10 min there were 20 more. probably well over a 100 people there by the time I packed up and left.

This is why I will likely never bother with some amazing locations. I don't care to share eblow space with everyone trying to get the same shot. I'd rather just see it quietly, enjoy it, and not just hear a bunch of talking, see a bunch of cell phones flashing and sharing eblow space with a bunch of photogs grumbling all feeling the same frustration and annoyance with the constant crowds. Ugh.

Very best,

hmm...i've been wanting to do a road trip up there to hit up a bunch of waterfalls...i'm probably going to wait till fall though, as i would suspect that would be less crowds, maybe some fall foliage? i feel like most spots that attract lots of people can still be beautiful in off-seasons, and early mornings to avoid crowds...of course i know nothing of the area, just what i experience around here...i take it most waterfalls still have water in fall, right?


i recently went to fern canyon at the top of california, and there were quite a few people there...so it took a bit of patience to wait for everyone to get out of a shot:

We had a nice leisurely breakfast in Moab before heading out, got there around 8:30 or so, only a couple other people on the trail. Not much drama lighting-wise, but much better for the blood pressure. :-)

Don't want to discourage anyone, just know what to expect. I actually do more wildlife/bird photography now just because of the crowds, it's rewarding in a different way

Some of the falls will have a very low flow that time of year. The can bounce back a bit if the area is getting a lot of rain though.

I was there with my wife, just enjoying it more for the beauty than for photography. As I was taking it all in some guy yelled at me to move to get out of his shot. Pretty unbelievable.
