If you use a GPS, it has probably led you astray more than a few times. Our GPS in particular is not an exception! From old gravel roads in the middle of nowhere, to icy mountain roads, our GPS always seems to take us the “scenic” route. Here is a small collaboration of photos that we have gotten as a result of our GPS getting us, well, lost!
This picture was taken somewhere in the snowy mountains of Washington, along the Oregon border. While our GPS assured us that we were on a “highway” the four foot drifts of snow on either side of the road, three inches of ice on the gravel road, and no sign of apparent life lead us to believe otherwise.
Captured here is the Maryhill Museum in Washington. We stumbled across this beauty after a little “sightseeing”/ ignoring the demands of the GPS. Ignoring the demands to “Make a legal U Turn”, seemed to confuse our little navigational friend, and ended up taking us past this historical Museum! As the building was unfortunately closed when we arrived, we will undoubtedly visit again in the future.
Traveling along the country roads you can find some really interesting rock formations. Sometimes small, sometimes enormous, these rock formations can have crevices that animals use for shelter. This particular formation was very interesting, I thought there was an animal in the opening just looking out, but on closer examination I found it was just a weed. I often find some very interesting wildlife in these spots, it's good to remember in my area that rattlesnakes like these kinds of spots too!
The perfect photo can be found just about anywhere, when wildlife is involved the best photos come from being very patient and being very slow and quiet. Having very slow movements around wildlife will change how you will capture your wildlife photo. For example: This squirrel, I waited for quite a while and I only moved really slow near it.
Due to a very busy schedule, I apologize for not updating this blog for the last month.
Recently for a magazine I went backpacking along the Snake River on a railroad track to search for coyotes to photograph. That day we walked a total of 15 miles. For the entire day we didn't see any coyotes. And for that matter we only saw a few deer but they were very skittish.
Even though we didn't see any coyotes there were still many great landscape so I have included two! Which you may view more of on my website at the link below.
