State of Oregon is often overlooked for the better known and apparently
more glamorous locations when people consider a visit to the USA.
Yet Oregon offers some of the finest photography to be found in
North America. Our tour in 2022 will centre on the State of Oregon
with a brief visit into the redwoods of Northern California. Our
tour is planned to coincide with the end of the fall when the Pacific
Ocean and rugged coastline will offer up some potentially exciting
and wild conditions.
Our tour begins
and ends in Portland, and we will spend a day exploring along the
Columbia Gorge visiting the waterfalls such as the exciting Multnomah
Falls as well as the snow-capped peak of Mount Hood. From here we
cross into central Oregon to visit the amazing John Day Fossil Bed
National Monument before journeying south through central Oregon
to the Redwoods National Park. After exploring the park, we begin
our exploration of the wild and rugged Oregon coast, in our view
one of the finest to be found anywhere.
The power of
the Pacific coupled with the violent ‘Pacific Rim of Fire’
has sculpted this coast line offering a mix of wild rocky shorelines
as well as extended areas of beaches and dunes. With such locations
as Pistol River State Park, Bandon Beach and Ecola State Park to
name just a few, you will be in for a wonderful opportunity to capture
the coast in all its moods. We also visit such phenomena as Thor’s
Well and the Devils Churn, which will offer you dramatic photography.
All in all, this is a wonderful tour offering amazing photographic
opportunities and one not to be missed.
