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.
This was an image I took with the old Kodak Brownie Target Six-20 that our family had when I was a kid. Love the soft focus and ‘natural’ vignetting. Mead Road is on Marrowstone Island, Southeast of Port Townsend, WA.
Glad to find that the film was still available. This was Kodak T-Max 100.
This is from the viewpoint overlooking Fort Worden State Park … looking down towards Point Hudson and (around the corner) Port Townsend. I love the way the top of the big Doug Fir in the foreground is bent to mirror the shoreline running over to the point.
Being a ridge or two away from the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, the Elwha Valley still gets its fair share of rain. Not anywhere near what the westside valleys get, but still enough that there’s plenty of water. Going for a day hike, it’s always prudent to carry some raingear, regardless of the forecast.
This photo is taken at the point the road is closed due to the washout. The building in the distance is where stock is kept during the summer months. In the old days, this was the location of the Elwha store and gas station.
The soft pastels of this sunset reminded me of a Maxfield Parrish image… except for the lack of a young woman in a swing. Not a lot of post production work on this one … it is pretty much the colors that were there.
