Sauvie Island, Oregon

Sauvie Island lies in the Columbia River 20 miles downriver from Portland. Farms, beaches, wildlife areas, and lakes are home to eagle, osprey, otter, beaver, cranes, geese, and cattle. It’s a very popular recreation area in the summer, but in the winter there are few visitors.

These photos were taken about ten years ago. The beached ship is someone’s dream, a concrete boat, that didn’t work out….or maybe it did, dreams can change like that. For the landscape work I was shooting Tri-X Pan and a deep red filter, which is a hard combination to beat for winter photography.

love the vertical elements
