Greeting to everyone. Yes it’s winter on Oregon. We had a major snowstorm ( very rare for this part of Oregon) in late December, but it’s all in the past now and we a re all looking forward to spring. Believe it or not garden work is starting here already. The snow did leave me with some interesting photo opportunities
I am big fan of the television show “24” shown on Fox. Here is an article featuring some of the folks who make the show happen including the star, Keifer Sutherland who plays Jack Bauer. They discuss their interest in photography and how it relates to what they do within the show and non-still photography
A Sign of the Times:
I am hearing from lots of folks I talk to that Nikon prices will be increasing dramatically as of February 1st.
Hunt Photo www.wbhunt.com will be honoring current prices on in stock lenses, flashes, and extenders through January 31st.

There is an interesting debate going on www.naturescapes.net regarding game farm photography. Articles written by Joe McDonald and Tom Manglesen offer contrasting points regarding this type of shooting. Those of you that are wildlife shooters should read this.
COMING NEXT UPDATE:
I’ll be discussing the advantages of subscribing to Robert Hitchman’s PHOTOGRAPH NEWS LETTER (www.photographamerica.com). In sites on where, when & how to get to some of America’s favorite locations are invaluable. DON’T LEAVE HOME WITH OUT IT!!!!
I’ll be discussing the new Canon G10. What a fun little camera. The G10 is the new version of the successful G9. Yes it’s a point & shoot, but the quality is really something to see . At 15MP it offers good print capabilities. If you can’t carry your full bag of lenses etc, this little camera will render some pretty amazing resluts for the size, price and features ( Yes! you can shoot RAW). You can pick them up for under $ 500.00.
Here are a few images from 2008
This big horn ram was pretty content to allow us to photograph him during our recent Workshop (Dec) in Wyoming.
Why not join me next year?
This is STILL CREEK, not far from Mt Hood on the SE Side of Trillium Lake.
The sun was just starting to peak from behind the fog. I tihk it added a lot to the image.
This is one of my favorite locations.
This is a verticle panorama ( 3 images stitched together to form the final image) of Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge. This 600′ falls was practically incased with ice this winter. The gorge had about 2 weeks of sub 20 degree temperatures prior to Christmas.
It’s so amazing that after these rough winters the gorge is such a fantastic place for springtime wildflowers and water!
