We’re heading back to Central Oregon soon. With limited time it’s always hard to decide where to go out there. Not sure if we’ll make it to Smith Rock this time but I have one in the archives from last June. Can’t beat this landscape. The views must be even more impressive for the two climbers half way up Monkey Face, but I don’t think I’ll ever see it from that angle.

Your visits are always appreciated! Thank you.

 

Have a marvelous Monday and week ahead.

I'm heading out on my first photo safari of the year to central Oregon tomorrow. Smith Rock is a primary destination. Then going to visit with family in Idaho. I will be away till early June. I'm excited and rarin' to go. Fun ahead!

 

Thanks for making my day with your appreciated comments, faves and valued friendship!

A heartfelt adieu.

An old shot from Smith Rock SP. I was here with my friends Rob, and Ryan Dyar. It was cold. Rob and I slept in my wife's van with 2 of my dogs...and there was ice 1/4 thick on the windows in the morning...but the sunrise was darn nice.

 

A new Singh-Ray GND filter is on its way....to replace the one eaten by the sea.

 

Also I now am a proud owner of a RT ticket to Iceland....so, as they say in the lightswitch business... it's ON!

The geology of Smith Rocks is volcanic. It is made up of layers of recent basalt flows overlaying older Clarno ash and tuff formations. Approximately 30 million years ago, a large caldera was formed when overlying rock collapsed into an underground lava chamber. This created a huge amount of rock and ash debris that filled the caldera. That material solidified into rock, becoming Smith Rock tuff. Rhyolite flows intruded along faults in the Smith Rock Tuff. A half million years ago, basalt lava flows from nearby volcanoes covered the older tuff.

 

More recently, the Crooked River cut its way through the layers of rock to create today's geographic features. Smith Rock itself is a 3,200-foot (980 m)-high ridge (above sea level) with a sheer cliff-face overlooking a bend in the Crooked River (elev. 2600 ft), making the cliffs about 600 feet high.

A small falls along the Crooked River at Smith Rock, Oregon. On a three day trip to central Oregon there was blue sky for only this brief moment. At least I was out shooting. No matter it's always great to hop over the Cascades get back to the high desert.

I'll admit I did a lot of gawking when hiking Smith Rock's Misery trail. Remarkable geological wonder. I found it's varied forms primeval, primordial and awe inspiring.

 

Crooked river hugs it tightly adding to the beauty.

 

This is one of the 2 major formations here, with many smaller buttes, spires, hoodoos and oddities including "Monkey Face" (shown in comments).

 

Smith Rock is one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon.

As it should be.

 

The weeks half over! Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday.

Smith Rock State Park/Terrebonne, Oregon

On February 27, 1943, at approximately 9:37 a.m., an explosion ripped through Smith Mine No. 3, a coal mine located between the towns of Bearcreek and Washoe. Since it was a Saturday, there was a short crew in the mine. Of the 77 men working that day, only three got out of the mine alive, and one of the rescue workers died soon afterwards. The report from the United States Bureau of Mines states that 30 of the men were killed instantly by the explosion, and the remainder died either through injuries sustained in the explosion, or through suffocation from the carbon monoxide and methane gas in the mine. The explosion was deep underground, and was not even heard from the mouth of the mine, despite having enough power to knock a 20-ton locomotive off its tracks 0.25 mile (0.4 km) from the blast origin.

 

All of the bodies were removed from the mine. There is a highway plaque near the mouth of the mine, which was never reopened, and there are memorials in the cemeteries in Bearcreek and nearby Red Lodge, Montana.

 

Whilst we're waiting for the snow to arrive back in the Rockies, Brianne and I have headed south for an indian summer at Smith Rock, Oregon; home of sport climbing in the U.S. Weather is perfect, friends from Ton Sai turning up unexpected, bald eagles surfing the thermals over the canyon and the climbing is endless. Cool way to spend the shoulder season.

Another small slice of the grandeur that is Smith Rock.

Truly a photographer's paradise.

Gotta return soon.....

 

Thanks for taking a look!

 

Have a wonderful Sunday!

have a great weekend everyone :)

Every time that I visited Smiths Falls, there were several RS23's in local service. 8043 is an example, seen here in front of the stone roundhouse.

Another attempt at this conversion

Here's a composite photo I made on my latest trip (visiting Oregon for the first time). The star trails are made out of 144 photos taken at f/2.8 for 30 seconds and ISO 4000 which I processed with my technique for vortex trails (which you can see at my website: goo.gl/NYgvHF) and I merged it with a long exposure for the foreground taken at f/4.5 for 13 and a half minutes and ISO 800; I then merged both in photoshop.

 

The trails were taken on location at Smith Rock and I've positioned polaris at the same location it would have been so it would look as authentic as possible.

Nature's natural grad line!!!

 

What you see here is the Earth's shadow as the sun begins to rise in the Eastern sky. I know the light is a little harsh on the rocks but I felt it was natural as it was pretty bright out there.....

 

Things are gonna get a little crazy around my house for the next week or so. Comments and posts may be infrequent but I will do my best to keep up....

I will still be able to answer emails and take orders.

  

I think it was about 21 degrees this morning when I shot this.

When at Smith Rock most of the attention is paid to the 2 monoliths, where some climb the cliff or hike over on the Misery Trail. But there is also rugged beauty hiking along the escarpment along the Crooked River viewed here.

Excellent walks for any skill level.

May your Thursday be an easy walk.
