This lovely picture of Mirror Pond is from early 1936; it shows a heavily forested Awbrey Butte in the background and the pond so full of sediment that the "sandbar" is visible. Shortly after this photo was taken (May, 1936) the sandbar would be washed down the river when the sluice gates on the dam were opened to facilitate the building of the "new" Newport Avenue Bridge. ...

"First Storm" I was challenged by Trevor O'Hare to this black and white challenge. I have to post a black and white image for 5 days, each day nominating someone else to do the same. I figured I would start off this challenge with an image I took while out shooting with him last night. The temps were in the teens and we braced freezing rain but we came home with some pretty cool shots of Bend, Oregon's first snow storm of the year. This was shot along the Deschutess river with the iconic Old Mill smoke stacks in the background. My first challenge goes to Jason Brownlee. I'm sure you have already been nominated, and I know you have some killer BW images! Lets seen them! Old Mill District Visit Bend Oregon The Bend Life Bend, Oregon — with Bend Oregon and 3 others.
