Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

The Traveling Camera: Proxy Falls

Proxy Falls, McKenzie Pass, Bend Oregon

Posted By on Thu, Oct 20, 2011 at 9:45 PM

Now is the time to go out and enjoy the mountains before snow falls. There is really no better time for taking pictures. That is why all the serious nature photographers can't be reached and why I am behind with my blog.

Recently, I took my neighbors dog to Proxy Falls on the McKenzie Highway. These falls are incredibly photogenic. I brought a tripod to be able to use a slow shutter speed. Flowing water looks soft and pretty if you do that.

Biggest problem for getting the shot was the spray from the falls. The lens had constantly to be wiped dry. Needles to say that my wife had to get the actual shot and I had to do some blending in Photoshop. Dogs never stand still, so it took several images to get one good photo.

The next couple of days should be really good up in the high country due to the fall colors so what are you waiting for?
