Stuck

Stuck with the bridge open for boat traffic
Bridge Supports

One of the drawbacks to living where I do is that it’s a long way from major shopping areas with a bridge to cross. When the bridge opens for boat traffic, it can create a huge traffic backup… especially on holiday weekends. But when the weather is nice and you have nothing else to do, it can be an interesting photo op.

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.

Curves

Curves by Allan J Jones Photography Curves

I liked the repetition of curves in this. and the contrast between the foreground curves and the background verticals.

This was an example of a scene where the colors didn’t provide anything additional. I try to look at images and see if the colors are critically important. If not, I try switching to Black and White. Sometimes it doesn’t work in B&W. This was a stronger image without the color.

Madrone Walk

The madrone along this section of roadway/walkway really have nice sinuous curves. Much more sensual than the surrounding fir and hemlock.
