Steens Mountain

Steens Mountain

In south central Oregon, Steens Mountain is a distinctive feature, rising to over 9000 feet. This photo is taken on the west side, looking east, near the small town of Plush. In this dry country, Steens Mountain wrings what little moisture is in the air and on the east side of the range is the Alvord Desert.

Wasco, Oregon

Wasco, Oregon

Small towns offer a lot of interesting photo opportunities. This was taken well before any social distancing was required … but there certainly isn’t any crowding in towns like this.

  • ISO 400 1/3200 sec f/5.0

Mead Road Shed II

Mead Road Shed II

This is a slightly different view of the shed on Mead Road on Marrowstone Island that I posted several days ago. This one was with a digital camera.

It didn’t involve nearly the work to remove all the dust spots that the scan of the negative required.

  • Camera: Fujifilm X100V
  • ISO 160 1/900 sec f/5.6

Upper Queets River Road

Road to the Upper Queets

We had a trip to hike the Queets River trail (Olympic National Park) planned for several weeks. The summer had been dry and the river was low. That’s important since the first thing is to ford the river. Most of the year, the trail is inaccessible.

But of course, it is the rain forest … and so the day we arrived the river had just peaked at three times the “safe-to-ford” level. But the drive in was worth it… with mists in the forest, and elk crossing the road, and hardly anyone else around.

Camera: Nikon D850
Lens: Nikon 24-85mm at 24mm
ISO 640    1/160 sec    f/6.3
