Fall Creek Trail – Central Oregon

Water cascading over a fallen log along Fall Creek in Central Oregon

I just wanted to share a few photos from a trip I took over to Central Oregon a few weeks ago. We got up early on a Sunday morning and went exploring looking for a waterfall I had heard about. I never found the falls…. I think I needed to travel farther along the trail but didn’t have enough time.

I did get a few nice photos from the outing:

Adventures in Spain

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on putting together a photo essay of my journey to Spain. I’m trying out a service called exposure.co to put it together. I like it because I get a chance to share a lot more images than I normally would from a trip. It is as much about the photos as the story… I share images of the streets, attractions and food.

I would love for you to check it out and let me know what you think.

The Window’s Glow – Travels in Spain

Window Light falling onto the floor in a room at the Alhambra in Granada Spain.

This is an image of a room in the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. I just got back from an amazing 11 day trip all over Spain + stop over in Lisbon, Portugal. My Great Grandfather was born in a town not far from Granada. In many ways I looked at this trip as a way to connect with history. I like this image because in a way I feel it represents that. The window is looking into the future and the room glowing in the warmth of the past.

I’m still trying to get back into the normal swing of things but keep an eye out in the near future for more images and posts from my trip.

A Bandon Sunset

Howling Dog Sea Stack at Sunset, Bandon, Oregon.

Bandon is probably the most beautiful spot I’ve been to on the Oregon Coast. It was my first time photographing the area and was amazed by the gorgeous beach and incredible sea stacks. It really was a photographers paradise. I was speaking to a friend Yesterday and he made the comment that you could spend a week shooting this beach and still not get bored! While doing my research I found a particular Sea Stack that caught my aptly nicknamed Howling Dog (Above – *corrected by a local expert I originally misidentified the sea stack as wizards hat another local seastack). We were fortunate enough to get a really fantastic sunset and wonderful moody blues highlights of orange. My last few attempts to shoot a sunset on the coast have been fruitless and made this epic sunset that much more bittersweet.

Landscape photography to me is a very meditative process. It requires slowing down, taking in and enjoying your surroundings.
