These bluffs border the Columbia River in the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Because of the needs of Hanford the river there is free flowing. It is the last free flowing section of the river from the Canadian border and Bonneville Dam, which is only about 75 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

Even though there is nothing much shown in this image I wonder what makes my eye please so much :):) Ah its the really good sharp focus and the stunning reflections on water I guess. Very good color play also.

I have driven across from this many times but I dont think I ever thought of it as looking pretty..but you have brought out a different kind of beauty. The reflections make this photo very soft on the eyes. Nicely done Michael..V

What a beautiful image this is Michael! I love the way the bluffs just seem to flow so easily and smoothly. They are such a lovely color also. The water seems so peaceful and serene.
This is not a buys image by any stretch of the imagination, but it certainly is one that would look quite beautiful framed in a lighter brown wood and hanging in someones home. Your comments are always so informative, that it is almost like painless history lessons! Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge as well as the richness of your photography with us :~)

A very sharp image of the bluffs - and thanks for the information on the Columbia River. I like the angle of the bluffs and nice color in the straited part. These bluffs look very nice on the desktop. Very good work :>

That water is luxurious. So smoooooooooooooooooth and glassey. This is a simple composition consisting of only three things: water, cliffs and sky. And only you could turn it into a masterpiece. Way ta go Michael.
I like. Tens.

Michael - I was immediately struck by the fine composition and sharp focus. The shot is well framed but the water line at the base of the bluff needs to be aligned a bit better, it needs to be rotated a little clockwise to make it level and parallel to the frame. Fine work.

The colors are so rich, I found myself staring at it and just enjoying the lighting and getting the feel of what it must have been like to actually be there.
