Oregon Postcard: Melissa Whitney

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.
