Photo Friday December 7, 2012 “Multnomah Falls”

I was fortunate to visit these beautiful falls, located in the Columbia River Valley on the Oregon side. Several co-workers and I were in town for a national water quality meeting and this view was a great reminder as to why we all are so dedicated to clean water. I had to take three pictures and later stitch them together into this panorama. As you can imagine, moving from the top photo which included the sky down to the dark pool, the exposure and brightness/contrast made this a challenge, but I think it came close. I hope to play with the sky/trees area a little more in the future, but this will do for now.

About jheem

I grew up on a diversified dairy farm in southeast South Dakota where I learned how to throw a hay bale, pull a calf, deal with death, and "name" the cows. I was in 4H and FFA, and was privileged to serve as a state FFA officer. In college, I studied animal science, focusing on beef cows, mostly because I figured they were less work than dairy cows....I ended up with a Masters Degree in ruminant nutrition and went to work for the University of Nebraska, first as a research tech coordinating data collection for a swine unit and beef feedlot on a research farm and then as an extension educator. In my current job, I focus on environmental issues related to animal agriculture (which is a nice way of saying I talk about manure alot). My husband and I live and work on a seedstock cattle operation in northeast Nebraska. You can learn more about our cattle operation by visiting my husband's blog at

      Thank you! I love the photos on your blog. I wish I could take “people” pictures as nice as yours!

        What a nice thing to say!! My only rule is not to make people pose. I like photographing people just being themselves, especially children… and outdoor photos are usually so much nicer. Letting the kids play & run around usually provides ample opportunities for great photos. It’s a lot of fun. 🙂

        I will put your rule to good use and see if that helps me.
