This is enticing. I must visit Oregon one day.
Kay: wink It is very pretty here, Red Pen! You will have to visit!
Wonderful light and dark.
Kay: Thank you so much, Mary. smile
What a huge and impressive landscape... so wild too ! I feel small !!! smile
Kay: Hello Florence, I feel very small too. Towering mountains are all around the gorge! smile
The play of the light makes the shot. It looks refreshing. This is such a good shot that you should consider straightening the edge of the water.
Kay: Great suggestion, Martin. I almost did that...it's been in my unassigned for a while, and I just threw it up online. I will follow your advice. Thank you!

The West Coast in all her glory, Kay. Oregon is every bit as beautiful as I have heard through your pics. I WILL get there some day. My promise to myself! smile
Kay: Hi Ginnie, I'm glad that you will visit Oregon. I can't believe how inspired I was to take pictures, when I got here.

Great picture with painting like qualities. It would improve if you would straighten the shoreline.

Who will be owning that land? It looks ownerless.
Kay: Yes, you are right. If the horizon was straightened, it certainly would look better. I will work on that.
The Native American Indians own the land. And they are the only ones who have rights to fishing on the Columbia River. You see them up and down the shore fishing in their little shanties.
beautiful nature scene
Kay: Thank you, Chantal.

Well composed, good lighting, nice sky. Lacking only a swan in the foreground.

It jumped out of the page at me and said "look"
Kay: A Swan would make this picture even better, you are right wink
Thank you, Alex!
