Fantastic Photo! Can't believe how calm the river is.

Yes! It is a rarity for the river to be this calm. I took this photo back in Feb 06' and I have made a dozen trips past here over the year and have yet been able to duplicate this image. Maybe I should sell the photo to Roadway transport because of the triple trailer nicely placed in the middle. Thanks for the comment Michael...

I used to drive a delivery route from Keizer to Hood River & The Dalles twice a week for 6 or 7 months and I never saw the water that calm. Beautiful photo.

Tell me about it! I was very fortunate to find the Columbia Soo calm. It was calm all the way up past The Dalles. Check out HORSE THIEF LAKE OVERLOOK PANO and THIS TUG AT THE DISCOVERY CENTER OFF I84 and lastly MY SUPER PANO OF THE ABOVE SHOT

These were taken Last Feburary 07 there was no wind and Very little boat trafic.

I was lucky :)

Thanks for the compliments!

R. Vollrath,

Thank you for the kind compliments! You know there are beautiful places all over the world. Like das Wimbachtal, and Obersee Lake. in Germany. These are just a small sample of places I would like to see.

Thanks for the comment.. I have returned here many times hoping to find it as calm as it was in this shot..

Hey Guys. I have not been on PanOramio for quite a while. I stopped posting image here because of the use of my images via Google through their API without compensation. This past year I had thought about coming back but as it stands now with PanOramio closing down its service I'm going to be removing my images..

Thanks for the Million+ views and 1000's of comments since 2005
