As many of you know, I live in Bend, Oregon, the hub of Central Oregon and One of the most amazing regions of the United States. As a professional landscape photographer, there are countless photo opportunities in the Bend area so leaving Central Oregon for work reasons can be hard to justify. A quick visit to my online Landscape portfolios, will show the phenomenal natural beauty and diversity of the Central Oregon area. Despite having amazing diversity, Oregon has no answer for Washington’s Mt. Rainier National Park. Mt. Rainier is absolutely overwhelmingly huge and beautiful.
I’ve traveled to Mt. Rainier several times in hopes of capturing a photograph, just like the one you see here. This past summer, I got my wish! Beautiful clouds that are not covering Mt. Rainier, an amazing display of wildflowers with the overpowering Mt. Rainier as a dominant back-drop. For those of you who haven’t traveled to Mt. Rainier National Park, the Paradise area of the national park is located on the south side of Mt. Rainier. It offers excellent hiking trails at the base the mountain and an impressive visitors center and wonderful lodge. I shot from this location at sunset and at sunrise and Sunrise was far better light for my purposes. I captured the beautiful photograph of Mt. Rainier you see above with my large format film camera, allowing me to create the huge, exceptionally detailed fine art photographs which are my speciality. My first print of this Mt. Rainier image is on the way and I couldn’t be more excited. I hope to unveil this fine art photograph at the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Bend Oregon, at Patagonia of Bend. The show will be 2/6/15 from 5-8PM. Please stop by and visit me and my favorite new print of Mt. Rainier National Park. If you have questions about this print or if you’d like to place an order, please feel free to call me at 541-610-4815.
Thanks for visiting,
