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.
I'm sure if I lived here, I'd get bored with this view, but I don't. So here's one more.
Afternoon Light, Steens Mt Massif from the Alvord Desert
This is going back a couple years, but it's easily one of my favorite images from a road trip with Shaun a couple years ago. Such dramatic light, weather and air in this place as the desert meets this chunk of rock.
Another one from this beautiful location. I grew up close by and spent a lot of time here in a lot of different kind of weather. Days like this are the type you just relish as they are a little rarer.
We bought a new house a couple months ago and it has an amazing Japanese Maple in the front yard. Twisty, Vibrant and full of character.
I was just doing some organizing, cleaning and such and the different colored reflections from the anti-glare coatings on my Zuiko lenses made for a really cool scene.
Silver Falls has a fantastic loop that's 8.7 miles long and winds through the forest outside of Salem Oregon giving pretty amazing views (some from behind) of 10 different waterfalls. The South Falls here is the largest.
