Guest photographer David Nielson of StaytonEvents.com sent along this gorgeous photo of a house and field full of beautiful yellow flowers he shot north of nearby Sublimity. Thanks, Dave!
This photo is nowhere near as dramatic or cool as one I posted the other day from guest photographer Maryann Nielson, but it’s still a slice of life here in the valley. I know pretty much nothing about such things, but it looked like the guy on the tractor was using the attachment on the back to flatten things down in the field, or maybe it was cutting things down. Or maybe neither one.
This was shot along Cascade Highway, across the street from the park and ride at the north edge of town.
There was a mass of black cows in a field near the Harvest Festival grounds on Sunday (you can see the big tent and stands at the festival grounds in the background). There are but a few of the cows. I think they’re some sort of gang. Good thing there was a fence between them and me, or I might not have survived.
I don’t know when this gate and sign went in on the land by the newish pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. I first noticed it two days ago, but I don’t go down that direction. I knew it was private property, but I’d seen people wander through there a lot. I guess the property owners noticed it, too.
As a good follow up to the photo I posted yesterday of a smoke column over what I assume was a controlled field burn, guest photographer Patrick brings us a field after it’s been burned. It’s pretty interesting how the burn circled that little building. Patrick’s description:
I went out to take pictures of field burns today. First the cloud cover and then the smoke did not help the sky portions of my shots. Yet, I did manage to get one photo up toward Silverton that is kinda cute.
That it is. I wonder what that little building might be. Thanks, Patrick!
