Michael Wheatley and I spent a few days in the Columbia River Gorge. Flowers were in their prime on the Washington side, a little late on the Oregon shores. It was great to get away for a few days. It’s been quite some time since my last visit to the gorge and like my trip to Zion National Park I am amazed at the amount of photographers flooding these areas. I guess living in Canada I live a sheltered life, rarely do I meet up with other photographers. It was great to bump into a couple of familiar online faces, Floris van Bruegel and Alex Mody. Both talented photographers from Washington state.
While down in the gorge I spent some time playing around with a new toy, the GoPro Hero 2 camera. The GoPro is a heck of a lot of fun, I am sure I will be using the camera on a regular basis. Here is a quick video of some random clips taken with the camera. Editing was done quick and dirty on an ipad. Music is catchy but quite annoying after about a minute.
