I wanted to write something clever and inspiring for this post. I was even going to go so far as to quote Forrest Gump, and how his saying about chocolates also applies to landscape/nature photographers: “Life [landscape photography] is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
I was going to emphasize that the work is to be there, READY to receive what comes, to put yourself in a place and time to receive what the sky and weather and light and wind give you. Just be READY!
But I had lunch with my son Harry III today, and he told me, “Dad, you don’t have to write anything. Your pictures are worth a thousand words.”
So without further ado, I invite you to view my Oregon Set on flickr — Hood River, the Columbia River Gorge, and the Pacific coast from Florence to Astoria. Waterfalls, mountains, lighthouses, crashing waves, beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
