Multnomah Falls

Columbia Gorge, OR


Multnomah Falls - is probably the most photographed spot in the Pacific Northwest, with over 2 million visitors each year. When you walk up on the falls for the first time, you will understand why.

The double falls are simply magnificent, falling a total of 620ft., which makes it the 2nd highest waterfall in the United States. One of the difficulties you will face photographing Multnomah Falls are the crowds. The Columbia Gorge has many beautiful waterfalls and Multnomah Falls is the one easiest to access, which adds to the congestion. The best time to photograph these majestic falls is when the crowds are not there (early morning, late evening, or bad weather days). Otherwise, just wait your turn and be patient.
