A quick and hasty HDR process of the Suislaw River Bridge as sunset neared on that evening. It's a goal of mine to better learn how to bland images in PS and create natural looking HDR images, but I can barely get out to shoot and find time to process a few images a month right now. But that will all be changing at the end of August! Thanks so much for looking.

The Siuslaw River Bridge. Florence, Oregon.

 

The Siuslaw River Bridge is a bascule bridge that spans the Siuslaw River on U.S. Route 101 in Florence, Oregon. It was designed by Conde McCullough, built by the Mercer-Fraser Company of Eureka, California, and funded by the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works (later renamed the Public Works Administration). It opened in 1936.

 

The bridge's total length is 1,568 feet (478 m). When open, the 140-foot (43 m) double-leaf bascule provides 110 feet (34 m) of horizontal clearance for boat traffic. The bascule section is flanked by two 154-foot (47 m) reinforced concrete tied arches, identical to those used in the original Alsea Bay Bridge. Four Art Deco-style obelisks house mechanical equipment as well as living quarters for the bridge operator. The total cost of the bridge was $527,000.

This is my favorite of the bunch. Sunset from the bridge spanning the Siuslaw River in Florence, Oregon. When I scouted this location in the afternoon, I knew that with any sort of sweet sunset light at all, a long exposure and the wood pilings going off into the distance would make for a preemo image.

Highway 101, Siuslaw River Bridge, Florence, Oregon.

We had a fabulous time touring down the coast - our kids were surprisingly intrerested in the places we visited and stayed over in. Makes for a more enjoyable experience! We stayed overnight in the Best Western in Florence and were treated to a super sunset by the bridge right next to the hotel.

The sunset the other day...took a bunch of photos I forgot about..worked out well, since we have rain rain rain!!

I had hoped to have captured a spectacular sunset on this evening in Florence, but it was not to be. I really enjoy the architecture of the Siuslaw River Bridge, and hope to return some day.

Yes, that is correct! J-Ri*'s Waterfall Chasin' has returned, for your viewing pleasure. Featured here is one of the myriad of unnamed waterfalls along Sweet Creek in Mapleton, Oregon. Sweet Creek is as cool as advertised from a photography perspective and most certainly worth the short trip east from the coastal town of Florence, Oregon.

 

Since it seems to be this new neo-movement on "the flick," I have disabled comments. Hope you enjoy!

We spent the weekend camping and hiking in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area(NRA). This was such a wonderful experience since this is our first experience with the sand dunes of any kind or being in desert-like conditions. This 7-8 mile hike was such a fascinating experience. Here we almost reached our destination.

 

The Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area(NRA), located on the Oregon Coast, stretches approximately 40 miles north from the Coos River in North Bend, to the Siuslaw River, in Florence. The park is part of Siuslaw National Forest and is administered by the United States Forest Service (USFS).

 

These Wind-sculpted sand dunes some of them towering to 500 feet above sea level were formed by the ancient forces of sun, wind, water and time. These sand dunes are like no others in the world and are the largest expanse of coastal sand dunes in North America.

We spent out weekend camping and hiking in the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area(NRA). This was such a wonderful experience since this is our first experience with the sand dunes of any kind or being in desert like conditions. This 7-8 mile hike was such a fascinating experience. We lost our way in the middle and roamed aimlessly to find our way back to the trail. We found the markers but not before hiking a few extra miles.

 

Seen here is small grass-like vegetation trying to outgrow the sand dunes.

While walking across the sand dunes on a 3.5 mile hike to the coast, we stumbled upon a little wet area in between. It looked like there was once a small creek flowing here, which got dried up with time. It was like an oasis in the middle of a desert. And these small plants with those beautiful flowers were growing.

August 1, 2010, Oregon dunes, Oregon. these beauties here.

I took this with my wide angle lens, which I've never used..just the macro ring from it...not sure if I like the curve it causes...this is an HDR made from 3 exposure shots.

Another reedit. I'm wondering re crop? This is zoomed in quite a bit. I see the stuff over on left is a bit distracting but can't see a better crop. Suggestions?

Here I was taking advantage of the height by climbing one of the tall sand dunes and trying to figure out a way back to the trail. We found our way after sometime.

Went back with Jim and his mighty weed whacker. No fog this morning but a beautiful sunrise

A new edit on an old photo. This is the Siuslaw River.

This is a bridge across the Siuslaw river on Highway 101 in Florence, Oregon. After photos, we went and ate at Bliss' Hot Rod Grill, where we did not get a seat in a car, but we did manage to snag a table with bucket seats.

This is extremely cropped...the cormorant was WAY out there, so I'm surprised I got the detail I did. I know it's not the greatest shot, but oh well. I watched this guy catch 4 more after this one...and swallowed each one whole.

A small desert life climbing the dune and probably trying to reach home before night fall. What amazed me is the thin trail it left all along and the persistence it was showing when climbing this "mighty" dune. Above all, this creature is doing the journey all alone. I now wonder how long it must have traveled to get here and be "captured" forever.

August 1, 2010, Oregon dunes, Oregon, this one taken here.

Mapleton lays on both sides of the Siuslaw River here. This is taken from the Highway 126 bridge. It was a VERY gray and overcast day, so this turned out pretty flat. The scene was actually quite pretty in real life.

 

This was my first stop in my new Oregon Towns Project.

Thanks to Ross' reminder re rule of thirds and placement of the bridge, I recropped to bring back some of the trees and lightened them a bit. I'm wondering which of all these you like the best
