Lost in the Woods

If there wasn’t a trail to get there, this gigantic waterfall would be almost impossible to find. Hidden deep within the forests of Central Oregon, the mighty Proxy Falls churns its way down the cliffside from one level to the next. Words cannot express the emotion one feels standing in front of this amazing waterfall. Nature is constantly moving with or without us and I’m just glad that I woke up in time so that I could experience it first hand.


Michael Castaneda


Growing up, I was one of those people who really disliked going out into nature. I felt comfort in the city and had no passion to ever leave. When I moved across the country, I was exposed to what nature truly is and it completely changed my entire life. A camera somehow found its way into my hand and I decided that I wanted to start showing the world some truly amazing places in hopes of preventing anyone from ever being like my younger and very naive self. As I began to form a style, two painters were actually my inspiration, Bierstadt and Kinkade. Their ability to portray the dance of light and shadows inspired me to create images of a once hidden world to me and expose it from beyond the shadows.
