Water Falling

Falling Water

It’s nearing winter in Oregon, so we think a lot about the water that falls from the sky … But what about the glorious drops that tumble over rocks, under bridges, and through the woods?

To celebrate the rain (?), we’ve released the last set in our “Western Waters!” collection, appropriately called “Water Falling.” What is it? It’s a set is dedicated to all that falling water, of the waterfall kind!

The images in these sets are from our “Pacific Northwest Stream Survey” digital collection, which includes over 1000 field images taken between 1934 and 1945 and spanning the 390 streams in the Columbia River Basin.
