Oneonta Gorge trail head off HWY 30
It was raining so hard I had to put my fishing chest waders and winter snow/rain coat on. As I hiked up and over the huge log jam that stops most people from accessing this little gorge I was really hoping that the water was not going to be over my waders. Needing to take a leap of faith I put my camera bag over my head and jump in to find the water a few inches below my chest high waters. I carefully waded up stream where things started to shallow up. Finding a mid stream angle that gave just a glimpse of the main water fall at the end of the canyon I set up my camera and loaded a roll of film all under my rain coat as it was still pouring down rain. I waited almost 2 hours before a break in the weather aloud me to get everything in focus and shoot the 1 minute exposure needed for this seine.
Oneonta Gorge in the Columbia River Gorge area. Spring rains means the gorge green will be happening. Shooting on these days is never easy but if you can get a break in the storm it can make it all worth it.
