Sun on the Deschutes River Trail by 

The Dalles, Oregon

Harsh sun on this day limited the shots my photog/hiking buddy and had originally hoped for, so instead I tried to take advantage of the stark shadows and contrasts by envisioning how things would look in black and white. This was a quick turn-your-head-and-hey-lookie-there kind of shot, but sometimes I actually like how those turn out better than some of my more deliberate comps.

    The sunshine here looks like a big eye in the sky – could this be Mother Nature’s watching over her creation? Top (no pun intended) t-y-h&-h-l-t-k-o shot! :)

  • :D Thanks so much, Helen! That big eye was cooking my brains that day, lol.
