Rusty Rodder by Paul Miller Somewhere out behind Harmony, Oregon. There’s the homestead, and then the ride. I was sincerely impressed. Considering the appearance, it might have been modified by a kid or two from yesterdays era, when the chrome was thick. Shot in manual, with a Canon 5D Markiii. Two 600ex-rt flashes were used, just for a tad bit of spunk, giving the rust bucket some well deserved sex appeal.
Wahclella Falls, Columbia River Gorge by Dean Artis Wahclella Falls is on Tanner Creek, near Bonneville Dam just 40 miles from Portland. It is a relatively easy two mile round trip hike. When we reached the falls, I noticed a nice vantage point atop a huge boulder where I took this photo. I very carefully scaled the large boulder even though my left arm was in a cast after elbow surgery.
High Desert Homestead Melissa Whitney This photo was taken near Dufur, Oregon with my “old” but trusty Nikon D80. It was shot in manual with premo shooting conditions. There are so many homes like this in that area that make one wonder who used to live there, and what their story was. These old homesteads seem to resurrect an inner pioneer in me that keep me searching for the next hidden gem in this sometimes bleak yet beautiful countryside. Kind of like the Goonies in search of One-Eyed Willy’s treasure.
