Mount Tabor Park

Mt. Tabor is Portand’s tribute to Mt. Tabor in Israel and was named as such back in 1894, when the city built two reservoirs there, with 2 more added in 1911. It was John Olmsted, designer of NYC’s Central Park, who recommended the city purchase 40 more lots on Mt. Tabor and the city park became a haven for the residents of the community.

As the panoramas shown in the above slide show, images shot by your DPA Instructor, Robbie McClaran, the park offers magnificent vistas including access to the Portland Skyline and Robbie will offer tips and techniques to make portfolio worthy images. This includes photo ops of misty trails, tranquil waterscapes and indigenous flora and fauna, as well as practice of the photo trick of panning, making use of the dog walkers, bikers, and other park visitors as they pass by.  The park is an extinct volcano, or rather a volcanic cinder cone.
