Smith Rock State Park Oregon Sunset

Taking in the sunset at Smith Rock State Park

My name is Rob Cole, and I am an amateur photographer living in the Portland area.  I am a recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest from Arizona.  I was raised in a family that valued the outdoors, and my interest in photography has steadily increased  over the years.  I enjoy documenting the beauty that I encounter in nature and sharing it for all to see.

I have some additional pictures that are available on my flickr site that you may also enjoy:
