    I stumbled across this website that catalogs all of the major waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. the other day, and it motivated me to get out on the motorcycle and visit some of the nearby cascades. Here are a few, all shot with the NEX-6 and either the Voigtländer Color Skopar 25mm f/4, the Sony SELP1650, or the Sony SEL1018:

    I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I've ridden past these falls dozens of times, but have never stopped to view them until recently. My only excuse is that the roads up to Crater Lake along the Rogue River, and then down again along the Umpqua River are motorcycle heaven, and stopping for anything but gas seemed to be missing the point entirely. I promise to do better in the future.

    I have a few others (and will be adding more as I visit them) on my Flickr page.

    And yes, I did stop at Crater Lake.

    I know that several of you have taken some great shots of waterfalls, so please feel free to add your own waterfall photos to this thread.

    These are great! Watson Falls looks very similar to Multnomah Falls. Love the Crater Lake shot. And I know well the motorcycle dilemma- I bought the bike to get to places to take pics. Unfortunately riding the bike was so much fun I spent much more time riding than I did picture taking.

    Oh, and here's a shot I took yesterday of the big concrete waterfall on the Snake River. It's called Ice Harbor Falls, er… Dam. ;)

    CV28/ND400 @ f/16 for a 4 second exposure (should have put the 21 on the 5N for this, but I left it at home)
