    Been 11yrs? Since I have been out of city to the Beautiful outdoors of Oregon.
    And never been out since getting into photography in Nov. 07'

    And was a 3 day event up the Columbia Gorge.
    First shots was the first ever taking pics from a moving vehicle.
    And was a challenge in itself.

    First image morning drive up the gorge.

    Did a complete set.
    of 96 images. Click on slideshow at top right for a chronological order.

    Hoping to at some point get to the beach. But don't drive due to a bad ticker.
    But thought I would share the experience. As it was a positive experience.
    And gave me much needed practice.

    Hope something there for you to enjoy or give feedback on.
    Feel free to give honest C&C. And no I am not one of those defensive sensitive types.
    But like honest feedback even the negative?
    Don't like that descriptor as others finding the flaws in my images makes me a better photographer.

    Thanks.

    Love the use of aerial perspective. The only obvious flaw is the lack of level horizon.

    Did a travelogue type for those busy and don't like to travel to another site to view.

    Started out on a 3 day trip up columbia gorge. What made it exciting was haven't been out of downtown portland in the 3yrs I started in this hobby. And been 12yrs since I been out to nature. So was a new type journey for me.

    And due to a bum ticker don't drive. So was fun learning to shoot from a car.

    Day 1 was both fun & exhausting for this old fart. Sitting around the campfire I think I strained some flab.
    as I gobbled down some Chicken.

    And lazily dozed to the sound of the campfire. Saying AHhhh!
