Default Backseat Photographer

On a trip to Idaho this past week I spent some time in the backseat traveling through eastern Oregon and Washington. Quite a contrast to the green western side of each State but not without it's own alure. These shots are all through the window at usually above 70 mph.

Beautiful country to be driving through. I can just image doing it in a wagon with nothing in site for miles and miles. Maybe topping one of those rises and seeing a heard of 10,000 or more Buffalo grazing. Must have been an awesome site.

Is that the Scablands? I ask because I just read an article about them (thie geology, and the HISTORY of our knowledge of the geology).

Pretty interesting stuff.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Sammy- much of the drive was through the Scablands. It's cool you're aware of it and even more interesting a tech news site, Arstechnica, wrote about it. The Scablands is not a household word after all. It doesn't sound as grand as the Grand Canyon or as bad as the Badlands. Scabs.... yuk.

Anyway, it is one of the more interesting areas in geological terms. Some better pictures and info can be seen here: http://hugefloods.com/Scablands.html

I only wish I hadn't been shooting through the window glass of a Camry doing 70 mph.

A very interesting series, Alan. And the dark clouds in the background of the first two shots really look menacing.

I love the bridges images and of course Arlington. We've not the grain elevators in Arlington but a neighboring village (Saginaw) north of Fort Worth does have them.

It was one of the neatest lighting conditions. In the direction of the shot the clouds were dark but from behind (as you can see in the next photo) the Sun was peeking through to light the ground and foreground objects. I've only shot in those conditions a few times but not with the EM1.

PS - the 2nd shot is what happens when the auto focus grabs the gunk on the window rather than the landscape. I don't know what the photo was but it was probably going to be the best shot.
