From the Archives

Nikon FM2, Nikkor 17-35, Velvia 50, Exposure Unrecorded

Two winters ago I spent 3 nights camped out on this exposed ridge below the southeast aspect of Oregon's Three Fingered Jack last. The peaks to the south are the Three Sisters Mountains. After being hidden away in a binder for two years, I finally got around to scanning it in today. Hope you like it!

Wild Desert Calendar Exhibit

Come celebrate the wild beauty of Oregon's desert lands, October 7th, at The Art of Framing in northwest Portland. In addition to many other photographs by some very talented photographers, I'll have one 24 x 30 print of my own on display. I made the image last spring from the summit of Mickey Mountain, an isolated peak located in Oregon's remote southeast corner. I lugged my 8 x 10 view camera 2500' up to this viewpoint with the intention of photographing the Hedgehog Cactus in bloom. With the cool spring we had this year, the cactus were not quite blooming yet. What I found instead was this weathered rock formation. More info on the exhibit can be found here. Hope to see you there!
