I am proud to announce that I will soon be releasing a new fine art photograph of beautiful “Hosmer Lake” near my hometown of Bend, Oregon. I’ve been to Hosmer Lake countless times in the past for photography and for recreational purposes. Hosmer Lake is visually stunning but difficult to photograph.
Hosmer Lake offers wonderful views of South Sister, Broken Top, and Mt. Bachelor, which is pictured in the photograph seen above. Because of the short bloom season for wildflowers along Hosmer Lake, it has taken me a few years of persistence to capture a photograph of Hosmer Lake which appropriately honors this wonderful lake along Central Oregon’s Cascade Lakes Highway. I plan on offering both vertical(seen above) and horizontal( seen below) versions of this image as fine art prints. I spent several consecutive outings being exsanguinated by hordes of mosquitoes in an effort to capture some wonderful light long with alpine heather at full bloom. The detail of the alpine heather will be exceptional, making a worthy foreground for Oregon’s favorite ski mountain and one of Oregon’s most beautiful Lakes, Hosmer Lake.
Hosmer is a crystal clear yet shallow Lake. It is located at approximately 5,000 ft of elevation and is near to Elk Lake and the larger and more well known, Sparks Lake Print. Hosmer Lake is stocked with a healthy population of Atlantic salmon and is has huge yet finicky Brook Trout. Hosmer is nearly 600 acres in size and has a maximum depth of about 12 feet. I hope you enjoy my latest attempt to capture a fine art photograph of Hosmer Lake.
Thanks for Visiting,
I like the horizontal view best
Elsie, Thanks for the feedback. i will probably start with the horizontal version of the Hosmer Lake print and it will probably be big! I think it will look great and have phenomenal detail. i’ll let you know how it turns out but my expectations are high!
Although I’m looking for a horizontal photo I prefer the vertical view of this photo.
Brenda, are there any of my horizontally oriented images that you are interested in? I’d be happy to give you a showing if you are interested.
I am responding to your facebook ?
It’s hard to choose. The vertical one was my 5 second choice because it seemed more balanced and rich for a “snapshot” view. But the horizontal one is better for repeat viewing, it has more spots that can make your eye wander and seems richer in details. So I think the vertical one would be more appropriate for publishing for consumable content, blogs, websites, magazines, cards. The horizontal one is better for content that endures and is viewable in whole and in part. Like a print on a wall. Hope that helps.
I think the vertical orientation is better because it focuses in on the mountain and the wonderful layers of color and reflection!
hey mike… great work, but there is a typo under hosmer lake des… u have ‘in acres’ twice… check it out
Thanks for the note. I made some corrections, including the one you noted. I appreciate the heads-up!
