Photo: Multnomah Falls Near Portland, Oregon

Multnomah Falls, just east of Portland, Oregon, USA is beautiful display of the power of mother nature. The 611 foot tall cascade of frigid water is just a 5 minute walk from the parking lot off of I-84. Legend has it that Multnomah Falls was created to win the love of a young Native American princess who wanted a hidden place to bathe. The day I visited was cold and overcast but is made for some fun photography. There is also a nice restaurant and museum near the base of the falls. Throw in good friends and a warm beverage and Multnomah Falls is a great visit even on an inhospitable day.

I made this image with my Canon EOS 7D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and a Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM, foolishly, handheld.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
