Interstitial 127: Dud

Mt. Hood looked fabulous on the drive home, but had begun to darken by the time I reached this viewpoint. What a great excuse to play in Photoshop! This photo was leveled, grayscaled, and filtered. For some reason, I’m drawn to this grainy look.

Interstitial 95: I Love My Oregon

If I lived anywhere else in the world, it would have to be in a lush valley where the forest is every which way, mountains are plentiful, and farmland extends for miles; where the ocean, desert, canyons, and lava fields are a short drive away; where every season can be experienced.

 

Interstitial 43: Pink Hood

I have visited this spot several times since starting this project on December 1 and today was the first time Mount Hood was fully visible. This view is a few minutes’ drive and about a 30-minute walk (uphill, and longer if you stop to take pictures of all the glorious nature) from my home. The mountain isn’t in view until you are practically facing it, so it can be fun to take people up here and surprise them.
