Celebration in Boring!

I had such a fun time photographing our annual “Celebration in Boring” this past weekend!  Despite the name, Boring Oregon is a pretty exciting place to live and we have an amazing community! This year’s celebration was full of great food, snow cones, live music, clowns, horses, face painting, water balloon tosses and a whole lot more!  The local fire departments even got together for a friendly “water ball” fight! Check out the video and a few sample photos below!

Jefferson Wilderness

My wife and I just returned from a week-long backpacking trip in Oregon’s amazing Mount Jefferson Wilderness. This was sunset over Marion Lake and Three Fingered Jack on Day 1. We had stunning views of Mt. Jefferson throughout our trip.  Here’s a shot of the Mountain from its South side on our second day. On the third day, the sunrise revealed an interesting lenticular cloud over the summit of Mt. Jefferson as seen here from the shore of Hank’s Lake. (Yes, that’s our orange tent down there at the edge of the lake!)
