Metal prints? I’m a traditionalist. I’ve always preferred my traditional fine art photographs over other medias such as canvas gallery wraps, acrylic face mounts or metal prints but I’m beginning to see the light. Call me a late adaptor! Last year I had many meetings with the good folks at St. C

I’d only read about Thor’s Well, an amazing natural water feature located at Cape Perpetua on the Oregon Coast until about two years ago. It is surreal, to say the least. Thor’s Well is essentially an oversized ocean blow hole. It is a large hole in the seaside rocks that is filled from underneath

Oregon is blessed with countless amazing waterfalls. Proxy Falls, Elowah Falls, Silver Falls, Salt Creek Falls, Tumalo Falls and Multnomah Falls are stunning by any standards.
