Very nicely composed shot,I can just see John Wayne riding into frame (sorry,I bet that sounds stupid to someone who lives in this stunning location)

12 Nov 2009 9:41am

@MrsAmber: Thanks.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Amazing landscape, it seems to go on for miles. I guess if ranching, or agriculture ever give up, it would make a great golf course!

12 Nov 2009 9:50am

@Curly: Thanks, Curly. On the golf course, lordy, I hope not.

Bravo my friend!

12 Nov 2009 1:46pm

@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon. Gotta get you city gals out into the country somehow!!

willow from Chelsea, United States

Beatiful landscape and colors. I like the way the series of almost parallel lines pulls the viewr into the scene.

12 Nov 2009 2:08pm

@willow: Many thanks.

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Wonderful. This image made me think of a line from an old Eagles song...I've got a peaceful, easy feeling...

dabbler from Minneapolis, United States

a perfect landscape in rich colors - huge "wow" effect - excellent capture! :-)

12 Nov 2009 2:28pm

@dabbler: Thank you.

don from spokane, United States

This is a gorgeous pastoral image. I like the fence as a foreground element which helps the distant and very tiny cattle to look so far away. The picture certainly conveys the huge scale of eastern Oregon. Super shot.

12 Nov 2009 4:01pm

@don: Thanks, Don.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

Gorgeous colours and I love the way you composed the shot.

12 Nov 2009 4:02pm

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

This is superb. The golden grass and light are so fine.

12 Nov 2009 4:47pm

@Steve Rice: Thanks, Steve. Not quite up to your spectacular Mountain Loop (that is one of my favorite drives).

Macrobaby from Vancouver, Canada

This is another beautiful shot. I love how the view point captures the wire fencing. The peace and quiet of this scene is really captured here, with such vastness....just lovely.

12 Nov 2009 5:07pm

@Macrobaby: Thank you.

António Pires from Lisbon, Portugal

Good photo of this nice landscape.

12 Nov 2009 6:24pm

kerfendal from Paris, France

I dream to spend holidays one day in a such landscape

12 Nov 2009 9:04pm

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Just gorgeous Jack.... beautifully composed, and clarity is just spectacular!!! Wonder how much more special it would be with an 11-18mm lens??!!?? (I'll happily lend you mine, which I hardly ever use!!)

12 Nov 2009 9:18pm

@Susan: Thanks, Susan. I actually have a Sigma 15-30mm that works on a full frame camera (the D700); which is wider than the 11-18mm on a cropped sensor. However, I never use it. The shot today was taken at a focal length of 45mm with a 24-85mm lens; thus I didn't come close to using the width that was available. Everybody raves to a high heaven about the 14-24mm Nikon, but it would be ridiculous for me to invest over $2,000 in something that I would probably never use.

Marianne Be. from Toulouse, France

I'ld like to live there, what a landscape !! love tones and colour ...

12 Nov 2009 9:51pm

@Marianne Be.: Merci. (PS - It is isolated and dry.)

Magnifique avec de superbes couleurs :)

Superb shot, great colors and golden tones.

12 Nov 2009 10:17pm

@Vitor Martins: Thank you.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Beautiful panoramic vista that you have captured here. I love how the evergreens maintain their uniform height to reflect the varying elevation of the terrain in the background.

12 Nov 2009 11:00pm

@Steven: Thanks, Steven.

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Beautiful composition and view. Autumn is a very nice season.

13 Nov 2009 12:04am

@akarui: Thank you. Autumn is a wonderful season.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

I absolutely know what you mean about spending a lot of money on a wide angle lens, and then never using it!!!! I spent a bunch on mine, and can probably count the number of times i've used it on 2 hands......but since i own it now, and couldn't get much out of selling it, i'll keep it!!!

13 Nov 2009 12:38am

@Susan: I also have some of those.

Ajay from Pune, India

This is where I want to be to turn my bad day into a good day.

13 Nov 2009 12:45am

@Ajay: That would work.

13 Nov 2009 4:33am

Tracy from La Selva Beach, United States

This is SO beautiful! I love the way the open fields look with soft folds of hills... I agree! I wish I were a cow! ( and they say happy cows are from California!--I think they live here!)

13 Nov 2009 4:44am

Stu from Home: Scotland | Residing in Kyoto, Japan
