Here are some photos I've taken of Oregon over the years. These are copied directly from my photoblog.



Coquille River/Bandon Light House, using a Lensbaby Tilt-Shift Lens.



The Shipwreck of the Mary D. Hume in Port Orford. It was built about 300 yards away from this spot and had a career that lasted almost 100 years.



Parker Falls on Mary's Peak - about twenty miles west of Corvallis.



The Historic Union Hotel in Union Oregon. The hotel has been very nicely restored and is a great place to stay in, despite the Ghosts.



"Witches Castle" in Lower Macleary Park in Portland. Actually restroom and rangers office built by the CCC in 1935.



Coffenbury Lake in Fort Stevens Park.



Astoria-Megler Bridge across the Columbia River at Astoria.



Same bridge, but I like this picture better.



Painted Hills in the John Day Fossil Beds. These are on the south side of the Beds accessible on the highway between Prineville, Mitchell and John Day



Mt. Hood overlooking Portland. From the Rose Garden in Washington Park.



Kinton School house (file mislabled,) along Scholls-Ferry Road in Washington County.



The Spruce Goose at the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville



Same museum, but in the Space Wing where the Space Shuttle Enterprise is hopefully going to sit someday.



Abert Rim, in Eastern Oregon between Christmas Valley and Lakeview on the east side of Abert Lake. Created by glacial action, and evidence that the world's largest waterfall went over this. Picture was taken in early May - thus all the green. A month later it was all brown again.



Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport Oregon.



Oregon State Gem, the Oregon Sunstone. Most commonly comes in Yellow. Red and Green are the next rarest colors. Also comes in Blue and Purple but in only one mine.



Top of Dougherty Slide (pronounced Doetery) on the highway between Lakeview and Winnemuca Nevada. Lots of truck wrecks on this hill.



Tillamook Head.



Multnomah Falls during the winter, in the Columbia Gorge east of Troutdale.

The Painted Hills. Part of the John Day Fossil Beds. These are on the south side near Mitchell Oregon.

Hobbit Beach. Sadly, no sign of hobbits when I was there. However, I did see a ship on the distance horizon sailing out to sea. Perhaps I had just missed Mr. Frodo and Gandalf departing for Valinor which lay beyond the western sea.

These wind farms are a hideous solution to our energy problems -- visual resources are destroyed -- solar is a better alternative.

View from Marys Peak, tallest hill in the Coast Range. Sunrise and a sea of clouds. The Cascades are on the horizon.
