p.1 #1 · Toketee Falls, Oregon


Accessible by 1/2 mile trail with a series of stairs. From recent road trip. Thanks for looking.

Bob

Reference from Web:

"Toketee Falls is a waterfall located on the North Umpqua River in Southern Oregon, approximately 58 miles (93 km) east of Roseburg, Oregon, US near Oregon Route 138. Carved from ancient columnar basalt, Toketee Falls drops approximately 120 feet (36 meters) in two stages.

With a reliable water flow on the North Umpqua River, the Toketee—a Chinook Indian name meaning graceful—avoids the seasonal fluctuations of other creek-fed waterfalls in Oregon.

The waterfall is regulated by a dam built just upstream by PacifiCorp, which now regulates and reduces the water flow over the falls. Previously the full volume of the North Umpqua River was allowed to flow over the falls, but has been reduced by a penstock that utilizes the drop of the falls to generate hydroelectricity."









Tighter crop, per Jim Fox's critique

Nice shot, Bob. I've been there twice and the flow you got is more than I've seen. Really adds to the power of the scene.

Hey Bob,

That is a lot of water from that waterfall. The composition though I think could be better. I would have swung the waterfall more towards the left side of the frame as the area left of the waterfall just doesn't do much and the pile of dead trunks grabs my eye.

Hi Stan, Scott & Mike,

Many thanks for your most welcome and kind comments and glad you like the image (note #2 image is a redo with tighter crop, per Jim Fox's critique): it was good time to be there- light was just right that morning.

Hi Jim,

Many thanks for your critique, per composition and the #2 image and you're right, the redo does look better. Image #1 was more the naturalist than the artist in regards to the logjam at the base of the falls, a very common and ubiquitous aspect in the Pacific NW.

Man that is a LOT of water, you have to be there at just the right time to be able to catch it like that considering how much of the river is diverted to the hydro plant, and you did a good job depicting just that. I'd definitely agree that the cropped version works a lot better.

Hey Bob,

Nice work with the crop, losing those dead logs really helps eliminate them as a distraction.
