Painted Background


Going through the old catalog sometimes yields some winners. This is from a camping trip in Eastern Oregon back in 2008. We broke a few rules and camped out on the side of the road inside the painted hills.

It was early October and we had camped the previous night in the Strawberry hills in what started as 6" of snow but turned into 1.5' overnight. Because of this, it didn't seem too crazy when we camped in a tarp in the Painted Hills and it got down to 19°. I took this the following morning as we roamed the hills we'd only seen briefly the evening before.

Good times huh Aaron?

Jonsrud Wildflower


As I've mentioned here before, Jonsrud point is one of my favorite places at sunrise. This particular morning the view out toward the mountain was a bust, but I hung around for a good hour afterward and as the sun broke over the top of the clouds, everything lit up in Oregon Summer Sunrise light. This iimage is from my latest couple rolls of film from my Hasselblad.

I'm not sure what species of flower this is, and not for a lack of Googling. If you know, enlighten us in the comments!
