|In the Oregon High Desert sits Smith Rock State Park, it provides a sanctuary of majestic rock spires overlooking the scenic Crooked River Canyon. Smith Rock State Park, with its hundreds of climbing routes, is an international destination for rock climbers. |
There are several thousand climbing routes in Smith Rock State Park. More than a thousand are bolted routes. The park also offers miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. Along your trip through the canyon, you might see golden eagles, prairie falcons, mule deer, river otter and beaver.

What a relaxing scenery and landscape to look at. It is really spectacular and the blue sky is just magic. There are such a lot of details and colours and elements of nature to appreciate. The rock formation, the cloudless blue sky and the calm water is really great. Looking at all of this makes me want to shout out: "I want to be there" I think it would be just great walking through that waters, looking up to the sky and once again appreciate the wonder of the Creation. A tranquil landscape with super framing, composition and depth of field all in one. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.
Well, Well, Well,
I see that you can go to Smith Rocks with your daughter but you can not go to the Painted Hills with Peter and I, what's up?
Anyway, your image is well balanced and I especially like the foreground reeds where you placed them as the entrance to the scene. Afternoon light there is not the best but you managed very well to keep everything balanced. I remember the break in the rocks on the right and how the light opened up so much that it more often than not burns the detail out of that area, here in yours it has not.
Good to see you again,
Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year...
I like the composition you chose Lori. The grasses in the foreground are especially nice. The climbing bug has never bit me! I'll hike, but hanging off of sheer rocks like these holds no appeal! They make a nice photo though.
