Oregon’s Multnomah Falls, the second-tallest year-round waterfall in the United States, is the most famous – and most photographed – scenic feature in the Columbia Gorge. It would not have been easily accessible in 1867, due to the dense forest that separated the falls from the river’s shore. Watkins took pains to find a point from which both the upper and lower falls could be seen in relation to each other. This is the first significant image made of this iconic place.

The photographs in Wild Beauty were meticulously restored and carefully prepared for print reproduction in order to capture the detail and tonal range of the original images. These beautiful archival inkjet prints are made to order from the restored digital files. Our standard sizes denote the paper size; a small border is left around the image to make framing easier. Custom sizes are easily produced, though, and priced by the square inch; if you would like to inquire about a custom size, please contact us.
