Century Drive is a highway that winds around a popular ski resort and into the cascade lakes area. More than a dozen snow fed lakes are in the area. Spent the afternoon/evening driving around looking for photo ops about a week ago.

#3 The Deschutes River fed by Little Lava Lake



EDIT: This photo was much sharper before the jpeg compression, too bad...

#5 A quick stop at a view point on the way back to town (Bend Oregon).The little red hump on the horizon to the left is Lava Butte. Some of you might remember some photo's I posted a while back from that location. Look at the shadow on the ground, you can make out the silhouette of Mt. Bachelor directly behind me.

I quite liked the first three pictures especially! Kind of place one could spend the rest of one's life

#1 requires some highlight adjustment for the clouds though. As for #3, had it not suffered the jpeg compression, it would make a great shot regarding the tasteful composition, which is always most important for me. Any photoshop variation including the elements does a pretty good resizing job:? Even the microsoft picture manager!Besides, I knowsome members herewho use the gimp ( the Barbarian, for example) whose pictures I quite appreciate.

Thanks bahadir!



I use the Gimp but for some reason I had to increase the jpeg compression quite a bit to get the right size for the forum. I have my own website but don't have it properly set up for remote linking yet. I really need to get going on it but I would rather be doing other things it seems.
