New Blog! Beautiful Hood River, Oregon!

Hi all,
Just today I launched a new blog that I fully intend on keeping up with a lot better than this one. It's called "Beautiful Hood River" and the address is The idea behind it is simply just a photo a day from my beautiful hometown, Hood River Oregon. I have thousands upon thousands of images that have never seen the light of day, so hopefully this will be a good way to get some of them out there to be seen. Each and every day at 12:01AM the blog will automatically update itself with a new image, that is, as long as I keep on top of the "posting in the future", haha.
Please also check out the Beautiful Hood River, Oregon facebook page HERE and click "like" to keep updated with the new photos and general Hood River stuff. :)

A little drive to Mosier

Bethany and I wanted to get out of the house today so we took a little drive to Mosier, the back way. :)
Everything is so green and vibrant this time of year, I love it! These are some photos I shot along the way...

Columbia River Gorge Sunset

Lots of photos of the Columbia River recently! Here is one I managed to quickly grab of the sunset tonight after finishing up a busy day of work and heading to dinner with friends and family. I was hoping the sunset would perform a lot better with amazing colors, which it didn't, but still very beautiful and peaceful cloud formations. :)

Latourell Falls, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon

I dropped Bethany off at PDX yesterday and decided to bring my camera for some waterfall photos on the way back to Hood River.

This is Latourell Falls, right off the Historic Columbia River Highway where there are many many waterfalls. This is 6 vertical images stitched together to make a panorama. Resolution and detail are greatly improved by shooting multiple frames for a panorama rather than just simply cropping.

And thanks to my new Lowepro Pro Roller x200 for the much needed rest for 3rd tripod leg! :)

Panorama photo of Hood River, Columbia River, and Mount Hood

I went out shooting this morning and ended up coming home with this new panoramic image I'm pretty happy with! It consists of 23 vertical images stitched together in Photoshop. Printed out at full size without enlarging the file size, it would span about 175 inches wide and 20 inches tall. HUGE!
Here is a small preview of the image, click to see it larger!

Also here is a link to another previous panorama image of the Columbia Gorge.

Rainbow over Columbia River Gorge

Yes I know... over a month with no new posts! I'm a slacker....
Been shooting lots and lots of new photos recently but haven't been posting them, obviously. Still working on the thousands of Mexico photos from January too.

Anyway, for now just wanted to share a quick photo from this morning!
