Welcome to Kroll Images

All Star Images
I love to explore our world and share my mind’s eye view of it with others.
I am very fortunate to live in a beautiful corner of the planet. The Pacific Northwest is a visual playground with scenic coastlines, wild streams, majestic peaks, and lush landscapes. The towering waterfalls and stunning vistas of the Columbia River Gorge are practically in my back yard and among my favorite destinations. Sports are one of my favorite things to capture, especially action sports like longboarding, triathalons and auto racing.
I’m surrounded by wonderful people, places, and things. It is my pleasure to share my vision of them with you.
I am available for commissioned work including event, concert, wedding, and specified landscape assignments. Contact me via email for details.

Lush and Rushing

Early spring runoff in the Columbia River Gorge at Sheppards Dell Falls.

Spring is here and that marks one of the best times of the year to visit waterfalls of the Columbia River GorgeLush and Rushing is this week’s Image of the Week.

As you know from last week’s post our family had a great loss last week. The Gorge is a place where I often go to breath fresh air and recenter myself in both good and bad times. With out of town family here we took a few hours Friday morning to travel the Gorge and calm our minds.

Sheppard’s Dell is not one of the marquee falls, but it has a certain appeal the draws me there often. It is small and the lookout at the crest of the falls gives a unique perspective. I often shoot this location by placing my tripod in to water and shooting upstream, but I did not feel comfortable with that on this day with the water flowing so heavily. Instead I used the neck feature of my tripod to extend the camera out over the water while keeping the base of the tripod safely with me on dry ground.

I’m always thankful to have such a beautiful area so near to me. On weeks like this it is especially nice to find a place with such natural peace and share it with you here. In a sense the rushing water serves to cleanse some of the troubles away.
