Lined Up to Fall
Poplar Tree Farm
There are lots of beautiful places in the Columbia River Gorge — far too many to photograph in one weekend. Despite our short time in the area, we decided to drive 6 hours round-trip to see a field of trees. Not just any field of trees, but a man-made tree farm that’s going to be replaced and turned into a cow farm! The trees, whilst still here, are pretty neat to see!
We arrived and found we were 2 weeks too early for the fall colors. The leaves still had a little bit of green tinge to them. We had hoped that some leaves would be on the ground, that they’d be beautifully orange, and perfect fall color. Oh well!
I loved the way they were all lined up in a perfect line. Depending on how you stood you could make them appear more or less lined up, with a giant hole or arch-way in the center, which you can just manage to see here. This is a 95 megapixel beast of an image, created by taking a number of photos at 155mm and stitching them together.
