There are few places that have more enjoyable summers than Bend Oregon.  Warm sunny days, low humidity, cool evenings and endless outdoor recreational opportunities are what define summers in Bend.  Luckily, I was able to capture several new Bend Oregon photos which  capture the essence of this beautiful city and the surrounding region.  At the heart of Bend, lies Mirror Pond and Bend’s famed Drake Park.  Named after Alexander Drake, the park offers Bend’s most iconic view right from the heart of Downtown Bend.  Old growth Ponderosa trees, rebound trout, Bend’s most famous footbridge, view of Central Oregon’s Three Sisters Mountains, and proximity to downtown Bend are just part of what makes Drake Park and Mirror Pond one of Bend Oregon’s featured attractions.

Drake Park and the Three Sisters are reflected in the placid waters of Mirror Pond in downtown Bend, Oregon.

Drake Park lies on the left hand side of this new fine art print.  In the middle of the image on the far shore of Mirror Pond, is the Nashville Footbridge with connects Drake Park and Harmon Park, located on the west side of Mirror Pond.  Also bordering the  waters of Mirror Pond are Brooks Park, Pageant Park, Columbia Park.  Mirror Pond is truly the backbone of Bend’s history, culture and a focal point for its historic inner Westside neighborhoods.

Another one of my new Bend Oregon Photos is of Smith Rock State Park.  Located near Terrebonne, Oregon, about 25 miles north of Bend, Smith Rock State Park is one of the crown jewels of the Oregon State Parks System.

My newest Fine art landscape photograph, Resurrection Falls, will be unveiled 9/2/2016 during Downtown Bend’s First Friday Art Walk.

I believe the stunning braided pattern of this gorgeous Oregon waterfall will delight collectors and has already proven to be a big seller, before its has even been released!

This beautiful waterfall, located in the Three Sisters Wilderness, not far from Bend, is extremely difficult to reach and I believe that very few people have ever seen this wonderful backcountry waterfall.  For more information about this beautiful new landscape photograph, please visit, Oregon Waterfall photo.
