Wildflowers in the Old Mill

 The first stop during the Photography Tour Workshop was at the Old Mill wildflowers. After explaining which settings work best, and lighting techniques, we spent about 20 minutes testing and practicing what worked for me and my camera.

Clear skies, perfect for star gazing

Why post with just pictures of stars? Well, for one, I had never successfully been able to capture the stars when I tried to take a picture. And two, I really like how clear the big dipper is in the first photo. Enjoy!
If anybody is able to identify a constellation in the bottom picture, feel free to comment!

The moon tonight

The moon looks amazing tonight!

Joan Osborne Concert & Dinner

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Joan Osborne concert at the Athletic Club of Bend. To put it simply, it was amazing!
She was such an active and engaging performer, it was hard to get pictures that didn't have blur/movement.

The tickets I won also included dinner, which ended up being so fun, and delicious!

Sunset tonight

The smoke makes the sunset colors really vivid!

Rays of Sunshine

Rays of sunshine as the sun goes down. Right after I took this picture, the smoke started to roll into Bend with full force.

Light at the End of the Clouds

Awbrey Butte Sunset Bend Oregon

As the sun went down, not a lot of sunlight could be seen through the clouds - only a small area of red and orange. However, from where I was standing, it still looked amazing!

Flowers in the Old Mill District

Walking around in the Old Mill District, it's hard to not want to stop and smell the flowers

Another cell phone photo, but I still love the colors!

Mountain View High School Sunset

I was driving to the store when the sun started to set, and I couldn't help but stop and take a picture. All I had handy was my cell phone, but I still love how it turned out.

Mt Jefferson

When driving around Awbrey Butte, I always get excited as I approach what I consider "the back side". That part of Awbrey where the mountains start to peak into view, and you cannot help but be amazed! The first time I saw this, I literally pulled my car off the road so I could just stare in wonder. It's a view that I hope I never get tired of appreciating. Here is just one of the magnificent mountains to be seen.
