Magical Mist

A morning walk to Metlako Falls in Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge yielded spectacular results for Your Shot photographer Pat Rose. While hiking along the Eagle Creek Trail, Rose came upon this scene, in which “the fairy-tale world of a tranquil forest offers a gift of golden light.” The falls have been measured between 80 and a hundred feet tall, the one of the largest drops along Eagle Creek.
