Finding the last location for this series was proving difficult until one day I decided to trust my intuition and make last minute change of plans. I hiked up one of my favorite trails in the Columbia River Gorge and when I reached the top I knew I had made the right choice. If you find yourself stuck in a rut, or just want to try something new with your photography, I highly suggest challenging yourself to create a photo series. I discovered a few things through this series. There are a LOT of overlooks in the Gorge where you can spot a train traveling through a scenic area. I learned that trains do not come as often as you would hope so plan to stay 1 hour after golden hour at sunrise and arrive 1 hour before golden hour at sunset. Lastly, I found that my favorite way to view the Gorge is from a high overlook where I can take it all in.
