One of my favorite short trips is out to Summer Lake Hot Springs in Eastern Oregon. I've been there about 20 times over the last 10 years but I keep finding new things to see and do. On the way out, I stopped in at Lake Of The Woods, a very picturesque natural mountain lake resort: I had dinner at the Cowboy Dinner Tree, which is a super cool, rustic spot outside of Silver Lake. The only two items to choose from are: a 26-30 ounce steak or a whole chicken. Summer Lake Hot Springs has been a favorite of mine for a decade. I love being able to camp way out in the open. I keep trying my hand at on-location product photography. Outdoors is always troublesome but sometimes I get a standout shot: I visited the nearby Paisley Caves for the first time. (The terrain is not especially exciting but there is some archaeological intrigue - possibly the oldest human DNA traces found in The Americas.) Got a nice crop panorama of the upper valley. Another gem gone undiscovered under my nose is the Fremont National Recreation Trail, which cuts way up into the hills. Every time I'm in the region, I have to revisit Lake Abert. It never disappoints. This may be the trip where I truly bonded with the Sony/Zeiss 24mm - something about the contrast and colors it gets. My old Nikkor 55mm just feels kind of plain by comparison. I was also glad to have the Sigma 19. (Oddly the 30mm went unused this trip.) Anyhoo... there it is. Thanks for looking! Anyone interested can find a few more shots & higher res on my SmugMug Page.
