Thank you, it sure has been beautiful this last week in Linn country, between the mustard, green grass and wild flowers, it's hard to spend any time in doors.

From one Lebanon Photographer to another, beautiful job on this photo. I have enjoyed your beautiful photos here over the past couple of years. Using HDR techniques just made this photo spectacular. Great eye.

I am truly overwhelmed but the response to this photo. Thank you all so much! When I stopped to shoot this a car went by and looked quizzically about what I was doing, if they had looked back in the rear view mirror they would seen what I was up to. I love this foggy look that happens up high when the fog settles and the sun finds its way to the ground. Again, thanks so much. We had a hoar frost today and I am hopping for some more fun images when I get a moment to look at them.

Light that touches where no thought can push
Silently a searcher of darkness, it's works-in hush
Radiant energy, brightness, a window shining upon you,
Enlightenment, illumination can even change, your point of view
Bless be the light as it comes into focus,
Beliefs, convictions, ideas revealed as bogus
Silence sharpens the word unspoken,
revealed heart shadows, darkness-spirit broken
Radiant beams of light and truth upon the route
As your child reaches dawn, and comes about
Oh! Keeper of light, how magical to see,
how Your Glory spills out and blesses me
There is a stripe in the road to remind us that it travels in two directions
Have you seen the line and asked the question
What way do I travel,
Right or .....

About Olbetsy

Olbetsy

I am somewhat new to photography. I began with a free point and shoot that came with a computer. It was so much fun, I purchased a SLR camera in 2006 and the hobby swiftly took hold. My camera gets me out and about and has enhanced all my senses finding what this world has to offer. I am also a quilt artist and I use my photography to help me understand color and form that can transfer into quilt art. I am an active member of Emerald Photographic Society and was honored as most promising photographer in 2007 and photographer of the year in 2008. I have recently had images published in National Geographic, the National Wildlife refuge library and National Wildlife Federation Magazine. The contributors to my success are; I carry my camera (s) with me most of the time and I have an Itinerate job which takes me all over rural Linn County Oregon. Many of the photos I post here were shot on a lunch break or from my car window when somethings catches my eye. I am not a person with the patience to set up the perfect photo, instead I bank on spontaneity. I anticipate everything but expect nothing. I look for the big picture though often find a closer focus once I stop and look. Weather is the most important element of outdoor photography. I watch the clouds, temperature, lighting and seasonal changes. Most importantly I have grown to appreciate fellow photographers for insights, tips and all around friendship as much as the hobby itself. I love to see through the eyes of others and WU is a favorite place to visit. I am inspired by the talent found here and have a never ending itch to travel and learn!
