two mountains seen through the barn.....

"What I did on my summer vacation....."


At the Vandevert Ranch outside Bend, Oregon, I was rather stunned to see the view of two snow-dusted mountains from inside the barn. This is a kind of countryside I don't see at home! :-)


Now that I am back in California, I'm happily catching up on AM3 photoblogs....and pleased to be back in touch with all of you.

Beautiful view from inside, I like the depth and the detail of the image, and this contrasted b/w.

That's typically an american ladscape for me. Huge landscape, forests, plains, ranches, cows.

@zOOm: Yes, I hear that from my French husband, too---and, of course, Americans have their ideas of the buildings and landscapes typically French. Variety is the spice of life, n'cest pas?

I like the way the barn and fence frame the background scenery. Very nice.

Great choice of B&W. What a view! Like the angle you've chosen, the dark frame makes it very special.

That's not far from here. I feel blessed to have the mountains in one direction and the ocean in the other. Fabulous photograph. Monochrome is perfect. I'm a sucker for fences and mountains.

@john4jack: Thanks. Yes, I waved as I came into Sun River....glad to oblige with fences and mountains. I have few more... ;-)

These comments make me bursting with pride to be in your family circle. This is exquisite and stunned me to see both mts. after reading your intro comment. Guess I was so smitten with the b/w and the framed building, aka barn, and the angles and softness of the major peak and trees I missed the second one. You are the master of such contrast in b/w and settings. You truly captured the spirit of the "West" even in Eastern OR. Glad for your trip, guess I was a bit busy in life and did not know you were missing. I delight in finding all your good works as I come up for air.
