Greetings Michael, Your latest fall color series is beautiful I enjoyed seeing the streams, lakes, falls and forests. Looks like a very special trip. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Richard..

Yes it was a beautiful Fall this year, Suprising since the Summer/ early Fall was soo dry. We got a good shot of Rain for a few week mid Oct and it seemed to give new life to all the trees. I am pretty much done for the season for photo taking not much to shoot with all the rain. In fact right now Salem is dealing with allot of wind 50mph. should be allot of down trees and limbs.

Thanks for looking

IT was really neat to stumble upon this spot. I was walking along focused on the otherside of the river and all of a sudden a pair of Trout nearly jumped out of the water to get away from me. I'm unsure if they saw me or felt me stomping around the bank but I waited around and soon they came back.

This is a beautiful photo of the Metolius River, Michael! The colors of the water and the fall trees are excellent. Are you going to map it? Being a fellow Oregonian, I know where the Metolius River is, but I doubt if the rest of the world does!! ;-)

Greetings from Gresham, DeEtte

Thanks for the comment!

Both trout are located just above the brown/ black rock that stick out from the bank on the lower left side of the image. They appear as white smudges because this image was taken with a slower shutter speed and they were slightly moving at the time..
