I was driving a back country road in North Central Oregon (SW of the town of Fossil), when a nice panorama opened up with a wonderful cloudscape. It was spring, so the hills had a wonderful greenish blush to them.
One of the things that I miss with the virus having closed the Canadian border is the ability to visit Victoria, BC. The trip is just a ferry ride … and the cost is cheap if you walk onboard … and the ferry terminal is in the main harbor in Victoria.
The old areas of town are a great location for photo shoots. Plenty of interesting visuals. I loved this claustrophobically narrow alley and one of the doorways that opens off it.
I try to remember to keep looking up as I hike along trails. If you keep your eyes constantly moving, there is much more you will notice. When my attention gets snagged, I try to remember that if I’m noticing something, it’s a good idea to evaluate if there is a photo there.
I struggled with this image, trying it in black and white and then back to color. What do you think?
This is the Slab Camp trail east of Deer Park in Olympic National Park. One of my favorite high country trails … partly because the trail starts at over 5000′ … so you don’t have to lug your camera equipment up all that way.
