We went hiking on Saturday to Multnomah Falls with my daughter and her family. The scenery was amazingly brilliant with all the glowing golds of autumn. For sure a painting would have to be created using one of the many reference photos I shot that morning as we hiked up the one mile trail to the very top of the falls! Well, it turns out the photo I liked best was the one I shot from the parking lot just before we left. Those dark firs and brilliant yellows just had to be painted.
