Colder Still

 
 

This is one of my favorite winter time images. It was taken Dec 30th on a bitterly cold day at Dry Creek Falls. Even though it was nearly 25º F that day, the creek continued to flow, leaving a crust of ice on every surface it touched. It took the boys and I a solid 2 hours to get warm again after that one.

Camping under the Milky Way

Crooked River Galaxy

 

While my kids and I traveled to central Oregon to see the eclipse, I’m always looking for the Milkyway if I get away from city lights and this first night was no exception. We rolled into our friend’s property at about 11pm, but I didn’t crawl into my sleeping bag until nearly 2am.

To get the tent to glow, I've got a small Snowpeak lantern hanging from the ceiling of the tent on its lowet setting.

Elowah Falls in June

 
 

In the summertime, I try to get the kids out hiking at least once a week. Today we visited my favorite, Elowah falls.

This is a familiar viewpoint, but I just can't resist it, especially since I'm shooting with a slightly different kit than last time I visited. This was taken with the Sony A7rii and the Zeiss Batis 25 and is a pano made from 6 images. The final image is 135mp!

There’s a brief window between seasons in Oregon- at the beginning of summer where the wild grasses grow really quickly and green. It doesn’t last long though as the summer heat dries them out turning everything brittle and brown. This is my favorite time of year.

I haven't posted a desktop image in quite awhile, but the basic drill is this- Click on the link under the image for the size you want. Then, either right click or long press on the image that loads to save it to your device.
