Frank Abell was a prominent photographer in Portland from 1878 to 1887, better known for portraits than for landscape views, though he made both. This rock formation, now known as Saint Peter’s Dome, has also been called Castle Dome and Cathedral Rock. It stands on the Oregon side of the Gorge just west of Yeon Mountain, which at one time was itself called Saint Peter’s Dome. The photograph illustrates a common occurrence in the Gorge: a talus slope near the maximum angle of repose, the steepest angle that a slope of loose rock can sustain shy of a landslide.

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.
