Last frozen waterfall photo (maybe). This is Ponytail Falls underneath the overhang. It almost felt like a dream to be there. Absolutely beautiful.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
Ponytail Falls On The Rocks
Columbia Gorge, Oregon
This place was amazing! So amazing that I composed this photo for you out of 56 other photos. This panorama is stitched from 2 rows of images 4 high and each one was bracketed from 7 photos making it 15,251x11,050 pixels! This is why I don’t sleep at night :)
I loved going out to the falls yesterday and seeing them all frozen and beautiful. What a great treat to return home too! I am also having fun seeing lots of other amazing photos from the freeze. Brian Bonham for instance posted a few!
Anyhow have a great weekend and prints will be available momentarily at http://www.wicksakit.com use the code: littlebigfund and receive 10% off while donating 20% also to The LittleBigFund :)

The Falls Have Frozen
Multnomah Falls, Oregon
Here is a quick teaser from today’s venture to Multnomah Falls. Had a nice morning journey with Michael Galassi and Bevan Cottone. This photo was taken with a Canon 5D Mark ii and TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II. I have a lot of pano shots to merge and stitch but that comes later. I couldn’t resist a quick edit for you all. I have seen them frozen a little before but since we are having the coldest weather since 1994 and the ice is taking over. Wish we could have had Brian Bonham with us. Missed ya buddy!
Edited with Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Nik Photography's Color Efex 4.

Something warm for a cold afternoon
I am putting together a story on Japan right now and thought why not share this beautiful sakura from Osaka with you all. The warm weather is getting closer all the time (unless you’re near the equator).

“Amor Fati – “Love Your Fate”, which is in fact your life.” Friedrich Nietzsche
Fate always seems to hold either a really positive or a really negative emotional response in people. Which end of the spectrum are you? I find it fate I ended up being blown over in winds topping 140 km/h with my tripod finally capturing some Dutch Windmills. What has fate brought you lately?

Missing my best dog friend.
It”s been a few years since Sophie passed away (December 1st, 2009) and she has been showing up in my dreams lately. It may be because I was staying with friends in Denhaag that have two lovely dogs or it may just be the time of year. Still she was the best dog ever. Really.
Here she is on a cadillac grainer (freight train) we were riding from Ft. Worth to Kansas City in the summer of 1999 I believe. Great memories :)
Headed back to Portland! Netherlands, you have been great. Thank you for all the good times over the past 6 weeks. It was a great tour with Bellydance Evolution and I feel lucky to have this life!
Now, wish us luck on getting the inflight entertainment system to work. This is a long flight without it KLM and Delta!

And Finally The Windmill
I have been here almost 6 weeks at this point and head home tomorrow for a couple of weeks before I head to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the holidays (you around Colby Brown ?). All I wanted was an image of a windmill. Well, the workload has been long with little time off and no personal transportation but yesterday I not only got one but THREE all in a row. SO there will be a few others coming out including (you guessed it) a vertorama (because I like huge files the go up and down). Until then here is a traditional Dutch Mill still lived in and used daily minus this day when the winds were over 120 kilometers per hour.
Now, I should probably pack as I leave in a few hours and it is almost 01:00 :)

Today I went out and found a leprechaun holding a butt plug in Rotterdam! I have been hunting this thing down for a couple of weeks and found it in it natural environment, the shopping district. What does one do when they find such a fabulous gem in the world? Nowadays you take a selfie with it. Thanks to my amazing buddies at SmugMug every selfie comes with a smile. Even better though is the family that sent their daughter over to his base and had her pose with it as though she was holding a butt plug while whispering, “now hold the butt plug,” and giggling.
Speaking of SmugMug you have until the end of TODAY to sign up for their Black Friday deal. 25% off your membership. Can’t beat that so go here
