Guided thru the back roads on the way to Smith Rocks by my friend Leslie, who lives in Sisters, we topped a small ridge.  I pulled over to see the view in front of us which was looking east – got out of the car and looked west – it was my good fortune to see this landscape image spread out before me.  Took my time to compose it carefully.  What a treat to find this spot, especially as the storm came in that evening.  I know I will be back next autumn – color season – and perhaps in the spring with fresh growth.  I like this image a lot and while I may be done with it I will come back and review with fresh eyes in couple of days.
