This photo was one of the first with a new lens (hooray!).  I just received from B&H a Tokina 16-28mm f/2.8.  It’s a beast, but first impressions image quality wise are very good.  This is on the way back from Triple Falls. I spied a way to clamber out to the edge of the cliff, looking straight down on the railroad tracks, and just in time for a gorgeous sunset looking west down the Columbia. 

It often takes some creativity and work to gain a larger view in western Oregon, particularly with the wet spring we’ve had and in the middle of the growing season.  But bushwacking or no, the effort is usually very worthwhile (after all, who wants to shoot only waterfalls, ferns and slugs).  Reminds me of Southeast Alaska.  It can rain and rain with nothing but thick clouds for days on end.  But then one morning you wake up and the sky is blue, and you look around and are blown out of your socks by the stunning scenery.
