The other night, the conditions were looking good for sunset, so I went for a drive with my camera. I ended up out by Jacksonville, OR, which is wine country. I really had no idea where I was going to stop, or what I was going to shoot. I was just looking for something to compliment the good sky.
I finally stopped at some small turnout and saw this view of the valley. I decided it was good enough, so I started shooting with my iPhone and my Nikon. A few minutes later, some guy drives up and says I’m in his spot. I was confused at first, but it turned out he wasn’t being serious. He stopped at the next pullout and came out to shoot this scene too.
He was a local photographer that says he never runs into any other photographers. We hung out and chatted well past sunset. We showed each other our work and exchanged contact info. I was really impressed with his photos. He was an older gentleman, and when I went to look him up online, there was nothing to be found. Thats a shame too because his work is very much worth sharing.
Oh well. Maybe when we go out shooting again, I can talk him into posting some stuff.
This was shot with my iPhone 5s and edited in Photoshop on my iMac.
