I'm getting better at processing images closer to when I take them rather than waiting a few months :P These were taken on a trip to some family property along the John Day River near Spray, OR.
My first ever pano attempt, this is the NW side of the ranch.
I spotted this growing near where I was standing to take the pano shot.
We call this Papa Ed's Stand, where my Grandpa had a bucket he'd sit on some mornings during hunting season and wait for game while watching the sunrise. This is my favorite spot on the ranch.
On my short list of places to go for a few years, it is a very short drive from the ranch. Weather was not cooperative and I got a late start, but here is a tease. I will be going back here to the Painted Hills Unit, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument real soon.
I took the long way home, crossing the river and driving back to Portland on Washington's Hgwy 14, and of course, stopped to smell the flowers on the side of the road.
I should have a few more from this trip soon.
