I went out to The Dalles Oregon USA, to try to photograph the amazing wildflowers that cover many hills in that area each April. I never got very good light as it was mostly cloudy and very windy. But I did come up with a few nice shots of which this is my favorite. I took this between The Dalles and Mosier on Seven Mile road. In the distance is the Columbia River and in the foreground are some of the amazing Lupine and Daisies that cover the hills. Taken with a Canon 5D and a 28-135

I have had a camera in my hand since the late sixties! Recently someone looked at a photo display I had in a coffee shop and got goose bumps. All I try to do is to capture various aspects of God’s amazing creation and let you also enjoy what I am seeing! If you get goose bumps, that’s great. But remember I only capture what he created. He creates, I capture, we enjoy.

    Stunning capture, love the composition!

  • Hi Barbara, I wish I had a better day shooting last saturday. After about 45 minutes I figured out I still had my polarizer on from the day before! But this was a nice shot and I had a lot of fun. Until last Friday I had taken very few shots since my mom’s death, hopefully I am getting back in the saddle now in more ways than one. RR

    Good to see that you are getting out there again. I’m sure the loss will stay with you for the rest of your life, but I’m glad that you are “getting back in the saddle.” Take good care…

    Another fascinating shot.
    And many thanks for your highly enjoyable comments. Actually I do not know about most of the other historians …, but that is just my private opinion!

  • Thanks you, Maria. I like this shot, but it has not had much action on RB, so I appricate you featuring it today.
