Default Lava Fields

Too cold and wet to shoot so decided to process. I sat on these since September because I'm not to pleased with them in a technical sense. The sky looks dirty in some and some are from the batch where I forgot and left it set at ISO 800 in broad daylight. Bleh. Mostly worth posting because of the cool location; lava fields in the central Cascade Range of Oregon. Unless you were around in 1980 when St Helens blew her top it's easy to forget these mountains are mostly volcanic. This spot along hwy 242 west of Sisters Oregon erupted about 2000 years ago. Trees struggle to to get a foothold for lack of nutrients and general harsh conditions. It looks much cooler when you're there in person.

I'll post a few more when I get done with them.

One of the neat spots up there is the Dee Wright Observatory. It's a lava rock structure built during the Great Depression by a Civilian Conservation Corps crew.

Love that last one, and the one before with the sky through the windows--I don't know how technically "good" it is (I'm not expert) but so what.

I would have thought that the lava would actually be good for the soil. Shows what I know I guess.

Thanks Sammy. Guess I'm just frustrated with the skies on some of them.

Just needs a little time to break down. I'll bet in another 2000 years it will be some of the greenest ground around.

Sounds like a job for time lapse video.
