MOUNT BACHELOR 2014
The city of Bend, The unbelievable number of Majestic Mountains, Volcano's and , lava tubes , deserts, rivers etc etc. The list goes on and on. The people of Bend and the surrounding area will keep me going back here. This is one part of the country that you really have to visit! I believe I captured a few keepers on this visit! ENJOY!
I call this BROKEN TOP UP CLOSE --- With the help of a telephoto and a ski pole monopod you can see how this mountain got its name. It must have been quite an exposion when this thing blew its top a long long time ago. By looking at these neighboring mountains you can see many many possible future ski lines.
I called this TREE BOWL IN BLACK & WHITE -- I used a warming filter and layed down and shot back towards the top of the bowl. The camera was only about 4 inches off the snow and I played with the angles until I got this one. I used a warming filter because a UV would have been too blown out or overexposed. This was perfect for Black & white. ---- PS The SNOW in here was AWESOME!
