Sunrise at Wilson Ranch

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 9 November 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

We spent the night at the Wilson Ranch B&B near Fossil, Oregon. The colors at sunrise were amazing; they were not created in post-processing. Please note: photographs from the actual Sumpter area itself won't begin until November 16. Except for the opening photograph on October 31, the photographs have been of our journey to Sumpter, and that journey occurs through another week of photographs (although it was in reality only a two day trip to get there).

NIKON D300 1/250 second F/6.3 ISO 200 105 mm (35mm equiv.)
