Corvallis Fall Festival Showing

Junipers at Painted Hills


I had a print of "Painted Hills Junipers" in the Corvallis Fall Festival '06 "Fine Arts Showcase", which was very well received, and ended up selling once.

I was often asked if I had "done something in Photoshop"... this seems to be the cross that modern landscape and nature photographers must bear. The image is untouched, even the white balance and saturation are set at the automatic defaults for the camera, and are "true to life". Of course, cameras always lie, but mine is not lying any more than anyone else's.

This section of the Painted Hills is somewhat off the beaten track, so it is an aspect of the structure that is not commonly seen by the public.
