This is simply a nature lover and photographer’s dream stop. It doesn’t matter what angle you take a photo from, it is sure to be a winner. The Icelandic government has helped restore the falls by adding gravel paths and cleaning up what had turned into a muddy mess. This is one of the most beautiful and most photographed parts of Iceland. Enjoy!!!

As I descended the path to the base of the waterfall, I realized that nature is just perfect. Latourell Falls, a 249' plunge, is beautiful in all seasons. In the summer, the water flow is very low, creating near misty conditions. The beauty of this jewel just takes your breath away! I just couldn't resist getting close to it and to get wet in the really cold water. Enjoy!!!
Converting an image to black and white gives it a dramatic and mysterious feel. I was going to erase this shot but instead I decided to edit it and upload it here. There's nothing special about the composition, as a matter of fact, I did not care about a perfectly composed shot. I just wanted to capture the moment, to enjoy it while it was happening and that's what I did. Enjoy!!!
Rocks, Water and Time
When visiting Boquerón, besides the great food, shops and second to none nightlife you'll find some amazing arquitecture. One example are the houses built on the water. This particular one is the most iconic. Located in the heart of El Poblado is hard to miss and almost impossible not to photograph. I was hoping for great skies but bad weather started to move in so I went for a long exposure to really smooth the water and capture some cloud movement. Enjoy!!!
Red and Blue House
Cape Kiwanda is part of the Three Capes Scenic Route (along with Cape Meares and Cape Lookout). Kiwanda is the smallest of the three, but it is one of the best places to experience spectacular wave action. A sea stack is located 1⁄2 mile southwest of the cape. It is one of three features along the Oregon Coast that are called "Haystack Rock," though the one in Cannon Beach is more widely known.
That day was really foggy and cloudy so I decided to go for a long exposure shot of the haystack. It turned out pretty good, enjoy!!!
