Photography In The Pacific Northwest USA Oregon

Coralie, aka MrsRoadrunner, lives in Oregon, loves it, (and from her pictures, I can fully understand why) and is an enthusiastic photographer. She writes in this guest post of the wonders of her state, a plethora of photo opp’s and breathtaking scenery!
You can also find her on her website at MrsRoadRunner.com and her Facebook Page.


Oregon is a very scenic place to visit.
When I talk about Oregon to others, one thing that always comes out of my mouth is bring a camera!
Whether a writer, painter – whatever creative expression you use, don’t forget it! The arts in Oregon are very much alive and well!

Oregon is a place where the density is 39 acres per person. What does this mean for a state of 98,000 square miles? This means we have space here! A place where one can stretch their legs if they so choose, or go to the city where one can find all kinds of subjects to shoot.

Myself, I am drawn to our wildlife and nature. To the soaring eagles, to the snakes. We have the falling cascades, which one can see as you drive down the roads. These cascades are what some people call waterfalls. Naturally, the Cascade Mountains are filled with them!!

We have the Painted Hills. They look like some giant of a beast came along with his paint brush and just colored the hills for his amusement. We have the red rocks that have creative rock sculptured out of them. We have canyons, canyons that melt into the sky line.

Our Mountains! The Sisters Mountains, three Sisters to be exact! Faith, Hope and Charity have an admirer, Three Fingered Jack. Mt. Washington and Mt. Hood look on with admiration at Mt. Jefferson!

Bachelor Butte (who is now called Mt. Bachelor) and Black Butte are here
as well. Black Butte even has it’s own ranch! So many Buttes!! Ones like
Bachelor Butte (or um Mt. Bachelor) are open for fun in the snow at that time of the year!

Oh boy, then the rivers and lakes! The Columbia river, The Crooked River, The John Day River and many, many more! Is it any wonder that Oregon is such a great place to fish?

Photography in Oregon is like breathing fresh air. They walk hand in hand! And you are never at a loss for a photo-opportunity.

        Thank you Smallfox Photography! The recent event over on the web site is the darn fire! Put out now do to our great firefighters!!
        Flower gardens are blooming, the veggie garden is going quite nicely! Young hawks flying above as the small birds run off the vultures. Getting quite a few things coming into the pond for drinks and a rest.
        My son come down from the mountains for a quick visit (and a shower haha), and told me of the cougar who was sunning itself on a rock.
        Life in the pacific northwest!

      Hello Deb,
      I think we all have a special bond with our cameras. From using it to capture the essence of a moment, or the spirit of whatever creature happens our way!
      Thank you to Smallfox Photography for giving me the opportunity to share my work here!
