Not only is guest photographer Tom Miller a talented photographer, he also brings us some knowledge to go with the visuals. His description:
Another photo (see also: Mount Pleasant) taken out in the Pleasant Valley area. Which is just up the road from the old community of Kingston.
A little further up the road (Kingston Jordon Hwy) you run into Thomas Creek and that’s where the Jordan Bridge came from that sits in Pioneer Park in Stayton. History 101.
This is a photo of something I haven’t posted before. After nearly seven years of taking pictures in a little town like Stayton, that’s saying something. This barn or shed sits in a field off of Jetters Way, behind Stayton Auto Wreckers.
In other news, have you noticed there’s a PalPal ‘donation’ button over on the right side of this page (under ‘Support SDP’)? I would not lie, my friends. I bring it up because I know how badly you want to send some random person money. Let me be that random person. My finances are misbehaving due to circumstances beyond my control, so even a little bit to help support this here site thingy would be more than awesome. It would be awesomely awesome. You would be awesomely awesome.
No pressure. Just a suggestion. I hate to even have to bring it up, frankly.
Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams sent in today’s lovely image of a frost-covered field from the area’s big ol’ Hoarfrostfest. That’s what I’m calling it – Hoarfrostfest. Thanks, Terri Jo!
The weather changed yesterday; it warmed up a bit and rain set in. But I’m perfectly happy posting more photos of the frost, so more photos of the frost I shall post. Unless snow happens. Then all bets are off.
Here’s another photo from the snowfall in the hills outside Stayton, courtesy of guest photographer Denny Barnes (see also: Return Of The Snowmobile). Such a beautiful winter scene. Thanks, Denny!
Denny also sent one more photo, but I think I’ll save that one for Christmas day.
We have a brand new guest photographer today! Zachary submitted this beautiful panoramic view taken just outside of town — this is one you will definitely want to click on to see it larger. The description:
Date: April 14, 2012
Overlooking my families farm on Fern Ridge. Taken from atop Basil Hill Rd.
Very nice! Thanks, Zachary. Please submit again anytime.
The snow which fell over a couple of days ago has pretty much melted (we actually had sun yesterday, which was welcome but strange), but that won’t stop me from posting photos of it. This was the view off of Fern Ridge Rd., looking out into a random field. Highway 22 runs along the back part of the photo, but it’s hidden behind a hill.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting another guest photographer photo of the snow. Come back then. Or stay around until then. Or, if you’re viewing this in the future, then just go there right now. Whatever works.
Guest photographer Patrick brings us today’s photo. His description:
With what seems to be a wealth of field burning photos at your disposal, I hesitated sending you any more; yet, the Nature Conservancy burned a portion of their prairie by my house, which provided me a little bit different than my usual take on the subject matter.There were several trees in the prairie, plus quite a few blackberries. The burned thickets made for some interesting compositions, but I thought these rosehips made for a very pretty picture. If you aren’t tired of photos of ash, I hope you can use it.
Heck, ya, I can use it. Thanks, Patrick!
Guest photographer Denny Barnes has another very cool (well, hot would be a better descriptor) controlled field burn photo (see also: Start The Field Of Fire). This time it’s a field that has been encircled so the field burns to the center. Thanks, Denny!
