I’m very proud of this photo. I went out to McDowell Creek County Park way too early on a fall morning. It turns out it takes the sun a while to breach the foothills on its low trajectory. I did wait around, however, and I was treated to this beautiful scene. The filtered light through the far trees is delicious, the long exposure of the water creamy, and the texture and color of the fall leaves are splendid. This is the result of a lot of time and effort honing my photography skills.
I entered this into the running for a spot in the Ruralite 2021 calendar and won a spot! My photo can be found on the October page. I am humbly honored. If you’d like a calendar, click here. If you like this picture and want one for yourself, come down to Linn County Arts Guild Gifts and Gallery store, where I have it mounted and as prints. Alternatively, it can be purchased here.
This photo was taken on a hike through the Opal Creek Wilderness near Detroit, Oregon. This is around the site of the Beachie Fire that took place in the summer of 2020. This area was so pretty, with mossy hills covered in ferns and old growth trees. I don’t know if the area was spared.
Hello, and welcome to my photography website. I’ve been unofficially on WordPress for a while as underapileofphotos.wordpress.com, but decided to try my hand at a more official site. I get the feeling it’s going to be a work in progress for a while.
I’m an Oregon nature photographer. I shoot the great outdoors – rivers, mountains, lakes, and coastal scenes. I also love shooting plants, flowers, mushrooms, and agricultural scenes that surround me. I am always honing my skills. If you find something you like, please consider supporting my work by purchasing from one of my print on demand stores. There’s a wide variety from low-cost cards to high end metal prints. Even better would be to come check my work out at the Linn County Arts Guild Gifts and Gallery store at 605 Main Street in Lebanon, Oregon, where I’m honored to display my work alongside a group of talented artists.
If you’re just here for the pretty pictures, be sure and drop a comment and let me know what you think. What are you drawn to? What scenes speak to you? I’d love to hear from you.
