In this section are photographs of animals that I happened to see from
the road. With the M.S. I can't walk any distance but have been lucky
to get a few good shots. The sheep are from Lesile Gulch near Jordan
Valley Oregon. The country is rugged and has some of the most beautiful
rock formations I have ever seen. The two rams were getting ready to
fight since this was the rutting season. They didn't pay any attention
to me, however I thought it was wiser to stay by the vehicle since they
could out run me and are unpredictable in the pursuit of love. I didn't
get any shots of them fighting but it was impressive how the two would
get a running start and collide heads with such a resounding sound
through the canyon.
The bird was taken in Crater Lake. My friend and I sit most of the day
in one place waiting for the right light and subject to come together.
The bird kept sitting on his 4X5 camera so I thought it would be a nice
shot, turned out it was.
When out taking photos you do meet nice people who wouldn't other times
stop and talked to you but when they see the big cameras are usually
courious. A rancher by Days Oregon was talking to us and we asked if we
could camp down by the river on his land. He didn't mind as long as we
didn't build a campfire which we don't in areas of fire danger. Said to
be careful of his dog who tend to chase vehicles. We came around the
corner and here was the dumb dog sign. Had to stop to take that photo.
