Crater Lake (9 photos)

Some photographic impressions from our visit to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon – it was a spontaneous decision to visit after our road trip sort of concluded at Crescent City in Northern California.

We arrived in the early afternoon when the sun was relatively high, so we took our time to drive the entire Rim Drive around the lake and then tried our luck to maybe get a room at Crater Lake Lodge (by pure chance) – which we didn’t. Rim Village is a surprisingly disappointing place, the only food we were able to get was some soup at the cafe and gift shop.

Nevertheless, the hot soup was enough fuel to hike up to Watchman Peak for sunset and enjoy the scenery before driving to Klamath Falls, where we easily found accommodation for the night.

I realize that the photos below are a rather mixed bunch, some are rather documentary, others I’m quite fond of – like the long lens detail/abstract photos of the shoreline and water surface. I had the feeling that they all should be seen by the world, even if the more documentary pictures don’t really match my artistic vision (the last four photos in the gallery do though). And I’ll post the black & whites separately. :)
