One of my favorite shots from last year was taken with my friend Terri at Silver Falls State Park. There is something that is magical about that place so when I awoke at an obscenely early hour on Monday morning I got the dogs taken care of and I headed out the door stopping in downtown Silverton briefly before heading to the park. As I made my way south the elevation rose and there was a thin blanket of snow on the ground. I was thrilled because I hoped to get a picture of the falls in nature's monochrome.
Ultimately there wasn't that much snow on the ground but that was probably for the best because there are some rather steep stairs and if there was any more snow and ice I don't think I would have been able to make it down to the falls. Nevertheless, I present winter at Silver Falls.
