Sunday Stills

Landscapes...that's the challenge this week for those of us participating in the Sunday Stills photo challenge.

I took these photos last week in Grant County Oregon. I had a business trip up there and took advantage of the beauty of that area...and a lil' bit of sunshine too! It's still the very beginning edge of spring here...you'll see the first of some green, but not much!























Ok, all I can say is imagine what it will look like in July!!! Oh so beautiful...



But, my personal favorite...




More old barn photos can be seen at my post from last week here.

Would you like to participate in Sunday Stills? Come on over. Our illustrious leader, Ed, will post next week's challenge late on Sunday and you'll have a week to find your favorite shots. Post them on your blog and leave a comment on Sunday Stills for that challenge so we all can enjoy everyone's hard work!!!

Beautiful pictures, several years ago went to Oregon for vacation. We spent two weeks traveling the state I fell in love with it. If I didn't have family I'd be living in Sisters right now.

I love the character of the valley shots. If I had a horse, I would love to be riding through it.

Of course, I love barn shots too. Always my favorite but it's nice to see the scenery other parts of the country.

Looks like a beautiful place to go hiking!

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

That last barn one is my favorite. I like to imagine the people that once lived there.

But your creek photos are nice, too. Water on dry landscapes is always a lovely thing.

Hey Karin I posted the WAHSET teams drill video.

Lovely. I enjoy the John Day area but not fond of the drive over that pass between Grant and Harney! Nope. I'll let you do the driving and photography and enjoy it from my chair, thank you!

Broken Y said...

The barn picture is my favorite as well. I pulled up your blog to show my kids what some of the rest of the country looks like!

I'm with you, the last one is my favorite (all were great however!)... It always makes me wonder who lived, worked and dreamed there.

Jen Mo said...

All are great but I agree, the last one is wonderful!!!

I've been following your challenges. What a great idea. I might give it a try. However, I just saw next week's challenge and I don't know where I can find three different animals in one place. I'll think about it. Loving your pics.

kdwhorses said...

Rebekah said...
