Nice framing of the vineyard Michael.
- December 16, 2018 at 12:26 am #380300
I like the way your framed this shot, Michael. Was this in the spring? Those vines look pretty bare. Hope you got to sample!
- December 16, 2018 at 7:02 am #380321
Leann, yes this was in the spring, the third week of March. And oh yes, we did sample as much as we could. I still had to be able to legally drive, and I hated to have to spit out the wine samples! There is something that seems so wrong with having to do that, but it was so much fun!
- December 16, 2018 at 5:36 pm #380405
I agree! That is tough. My husband and I enjoy touring our local wineries. We were camping in the Okanagan one summer and after a few days of winery visits, mixed with swimming and outdoor fun, our oldest (5 at the time) said, “So, which wineries are we going to today?!” LOL
- December 16, 2018 at 7:43 am #380326
Nice Michael. Something about the framing gives the image an Italian look. It might be the shape at the bottom.
- December 16, 2018 at 3:41 pm #380397
Great shot Micheal, my eye follows the vines all the way down, love it!

The warm afternoon (?) glow of light on the buildings and road makes a really nice contrast to the green of the trees. Adds a bit of pop to the image.

Looking up? Cool shot, Rob. A neat perspective.
- December 16, 2018 at 7:46 am #380327
Nice change of point of view Rob. I had been looking through the stuff to see if I had an upward looking vanishing point but didn’t find one yet. Glad to see yours.
- December 16, 2018 at 3:42 pm #380398
Cool shot Rob!
- December 17, 2018 at 7:07 pm #380653
Well done Rob, I really like the nice clean lines of this pic.
- December 17, 2018 at 8:10 pm #380666
Wonderful perspective. Soft, pastel colors. And as Dawn said nice clean lines. All combined to make a beautiful abstract. Thumbs up Rob.

Thank you everyone. This is a truly spectacular building. It’s a fantastic subject to take photos of. I’ll be posting a few more foto’s of it at a later date.

This one gives me an anxious feeling, Diane. Like, I might actually vanish if I go down the path!
- December 16, 2018 at 7:48 am #380329
You’re not going to vanish Leanne. Everything is just going to spiral in on itself tighter and tighter until …
Definitely an emotion provoking image Diane!
- December 16, 2018 at 5:38 pm #380406
Yikes, Bobbie! There is a (horror or fantasy) story here!

Everything works in this seascape Leanne – the color, the shapes, the balance, the lighting. It’s all there for me.

Beautiful image Leanne. I wanted to get over to Newport last summer but never did. Want to spend some time shooting at Yaquina Head area.
- December 16, 2018 at 3:44 pm #380399
Lovely shot Leanne, I really like the detail on the rocks and in the mud1
- December 17, 2018 at 12:59 am #380443
Thanks Diane, Dave and Bobbie. I was reading about these rocks once belonging to a sea arch, called Jump Off Joe. It collapsed in 1916. The power of water erosion is pretty amazing. It is a fun and interesting spot – I hope you get your visit in, Dave.
- December 17, 2018 at 5:18 am #380491
Love the way the clouds and the foreground rocks all point toward the headland and the vanishing horizon there. My eye wanders off into the distance amid the stormy clouds and wind blown waves and then returns to the peaceful pool of water amid the sumptuous texture and colour of the rocks. Beautiful pic Leanne.

Again, I can smell it. It smells fresher than Elins goats. 🙂

Thanks Graham and Chris! I want to go back and breathe that air again soon! Love the Oregon coast.

I remember when you were so shy about posting your work, you’ve come a long way even writing guides for photosy, you’re posting some great stuff.

That is a busy little brook, Bobbie! What a nice spot to stop. It reminds me of some places in BC, where I live.

Thanks Leanne. I’ve always wanted to get to BC but it hasn’t happened yet.

I have never been to Poland, though I know a lot of Poles. What did you make of it? I would like to go – maybe try skiing there.
- December 17, 2018 at 11:47 am #380578
We had a good time Chris but it was a trip we placed limitations on as to what to see and not see, where to go and not go. That was my condition for going.
Zakopane, the place I took the photo, is also an area well known for its ski slopes (we don’t ski).

Awesome Elin! And so very you, to find a vanishing point image in a row of creatures. I love it.

Thank you Leanne – feeding them is a fascinating sight.
- December 17, 2018 at 9:03 am #380545
Love this. I can smell it almost. 🙂
- December 17, 2018 at 4:14 pm #380619
Hope you didn´t get the rams smell up your nose – terrible at this time of the year – so bad that it could be used in warfare.
- December 17, 2018 at 11:49 am #380579
Wonderful Elin. I love your farm series. The rams almost look like mythological creatures here.
- December 17, 2018 at 4:18 pm #380620
Thank you Bobbie – Jon´s rams are wonderful and peaceful creatures – a bit aggressive, battered and bloody now during the mating season.
- December 17, 2018 at 1:55 pm #380609
You take such wonderful sheep photos Elin, I never would have thought them this photogenic.
- December 17, 2018 at 4:19 pm #380621
Thank you Robert – they are really beautiful creatures – my photos do not do them justice.
- December 17, 2018 at 8:27 pm #380669
Great lighting highlights the sheep beautifully. And the earth tones fit the subject matter perfectly.
- December 17, 2018 at 8:30 pm #380670
Lets try that again. The lighting highlights the sheep very well. And the earth tones match the subject matter perfectly. Nice job.
- December 17, 2018 at 9:20 pm #380681
What a wonderful picture Elin. So much warm earthy colour and texture. I love the light in this pic. Flash?
Also; reminds me of government heads-of-state ramming heads at a conference meeting.
I can just imagine the day of the shoot too…”OK, now don’t look at the camera guys, just eat the straw and look natural. Damn it!”
- December 20, 2018 at 3:19 pm #381072

Great shots David. How do you feel about the pathway through the wilderness? I would be torn, if it was one of my favourite spots. Awesome for riding a bike on, but taking away some of the tranquility and isolation of the place.
- December 17, 2018 at 1:57 pm #380610
Love that first one David.
- December 20, 2018 at 4:38 pm #381092
It is a catch22 Chris. This track leads to a site of historical significance. It runs through what is essentially a peat bog that is full of wombat burrows – whilst not the most pleasing view it is far better than the damage to the environment.

Something about this image intrigues me Anne but I can’t put my finger on what it is.
- December 17, 2018 at 2:00 pm #380611
For me its about the juxtaposition of the three modes of travel.
- December 17, 2018 at 9:55 pm #380693
This is a fabulous photo Anne. For me the story begins with the man on the bike carrying branches and it just goes from there. Taking time to explore, especially in exotic locations, doesn’t get any better and pics like this is your reward.
- December 18, 2018 at 1:19 am #380706

Thanks. I appreciate your comment Dawn. 🙂

I like this photo a lot Dave. The way the 2 curves of different forms of transportation mirror each other and the trees in between them is intriguing. Well done…
- December 18, 2018 at 10:03 am #380725
Thanks Tom. Shot it at a few different POV’s. I thought this one was the best.
- December 18, 2018 at 10:40 am #380734
Interesting image Dave (and a little dizzying). It almost looks like a composite of 2 images.
- December 18, 2018 at 11:44 am #380743
Thanks for commenting Bobbie. It’s just one shot. My post processing skills are not good enough to make a composite. Can’t even remove some branches over the road on the lower right without messing it up. But I keep working at it. 🙂
- December 18, 2018 at 1:38 pm #380762
This is a fun photo Dave! Personally I like the limbs over the road. They frame the road quite well in my opinion.
- December 18, 2018 at 2:01 pm #380764
Thanks. I guess I didn’t express that very well. I didn’t mean the branches above the road at the top of the image. Look at the lower right corner. There’s a spot on the pavement where the yellow lines don’t line up and the pavement is smudged. There was a limb with a lot of small branches sticking up from the side of the road. I didn’t make the effort to remove them at the time. Didn’t bother me until I looked at the shot enlarged on my computer monitor. They needed to be removed. I’m just not very good at that yet.
- December 18, 2018 at 7:54 pm #380787
You’re preaching to the choir! I’m no master at post production either. Honeslty though, I didn’t notice the smuged lines until you pointed them out just now and I was looking on a 24 inch monitor before. I guess if some things don’t bother us, we’ll never get better at this whole photography process. All in all, I still think it’s a great shot.
- December 19, 2018 at 9:57 am #380909
I’m what one would call “technologically challenged.” But I’m a learnin’. 🙂 Thanks again for your comments Preston.
- December 19, 2018 at 6:16 am #380859
I really like this pic Dave. It doesn’t seem to follow any ‘rules’ in photography but it works so well. Perhaps its the three main elements that I find appealing; the tracks, the road and the trees. All competing for attention but each sharing equal billing.
Together, they increase the desire to know what happens around the bend. Do they cross? Or do they continue on beside each other? If I had a friend with me, I’d be saying “You take the high road and I’ll take the low road”.
Wouldn’t mind seeing this scene in a foggy mist too. Great location, great shot.
- December 19, 2018 at 10:15 am #380910
Thanks for your comment Graham. Do they cross around the bend? Honestly I don’t know. I drove to here and left in the other direction. I remembered this spot from a drive I took quite a while ago. Went there Monday morning looking for a vanishing point shot. When I was done I turned around and drove home.
There were areas of fog around that morning but unfortunately not at this particular spot. I plan on going back on another foggy morning.
Edit: Went back this foggy morning and got kicked off the train tracks before I even got one shot. Was told I was trespassing and they’d written down my license plate number and if they saw my truck parked there again they’d call the police. The man said “Sorry. That’s just the way it’s been after 9/11. Oh well.
- December 19, 2018 at 9:13 am #380906
I like this shot too. Good eye!

Nice photo Gray. You have 2 sensor spots that you need to clean in your camera though in the upper left hand corner. 🙂

I sure as heck do have spots. It’s an older shot with an old camera, thanks for pointing this out. ??

California Route 4 on a road trip my dad and I took in 2009. It’s not the best quality, but it’s one of my favorites from the trip.
One I took over the weekend. Winding Road Ahead
- December 20, 2018 at 11:39 am #381052
Has been a while since I was on California route 4 Preston. It goes through one of my favorite historic gold mining towns. Angels Camp. Home to Mark Twains “Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” My parents built a cabin in Bear Valley in 1967. I learned to ski at Mt. Reba. Thanks for the memories. 🙂
- December 20, 2018 at 8:20 pm #381112
I remember it being a gorgeous ride. We were heading looking for Giant Trees and a nice gentleman in Virginia City told us to go to Calaveras Big Tree State Park. So happy he did that. I’m glad it took you back a bit Dave!
