Vistas of many beauties... I appreciate the expressions silently voiced within your artful images...

I posted a poem in response to, "Fence Post Lookout" titled, "You Sing Your Song." I am blessed each day with a chorus of robins greeting the dawning of day.

doesn't it amaze you that the color comes from light reflecting off of the dust particles in the air?

love the tones.

Hi

Thanks for following my blog, now I have discovered you too. I like your insightful phrase in your blog banner: 'sooner of later you will hit something.' It's true, the secret is just to get on and try!

I like your photographs and how you have presented these in your blog. They make me yearn to travel!!!! What have you started! lol.

It's really lovely. I wish you would give more location info, but it's interesting. We all have our things that are important to us. I find I'm pretty geo-referenced, and others are not. Your photos are captivating, and this is really special.

Beautiful shot and sky. I've scrolled down through your recent shots...amazing; can't decide which one I like best. Some of the places I recognize from a road trip to the Grand Coulee Dam I took many years ago. Your composition is wonderful and I really enjoy your creative titles for each post. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

Hi Stephen, I grew up in Oakville I went to Oakville Trafalger to start and then to White Oaks. I knew people back then in Blakelock. It is indeed a small world! We also look sound around the same age so don"t say a million years ago, maybe a thousand or so LOL.

tapirgal,
this photo was taken between john day and prineville on highway 26. sorry i can't be more specific. i have seen similar photos to this all over washington and oregon. finding layers of mountains is easy here. you can get these all day long in layers of blue. this one is a sundown ... so it naturally casts more golds, oranges, and browns.
