Central Oregon

Ranch life...

Hi all, Hope your week is off to a good start! As promised, here are shots from our trip to Brasada Ranch...(these are a mix of iPhone pics and shots with my Canon).

Central Oregon has a wild, rugged beauty to it. Gnarled Juniper trees with their soft blue berries, bristled sage brush and tall evergreens dominate the landscape.ranch1

and she tried out my camera on our photo walks together! It was too cute to see her snapping shots of everything.

My favorite photos were taken during the golden hour when everything seemed to glow with the warmth of the setting sun.

Felt so very blessed to spend our Spring Break here. We will be going back to the ranch for sure!

Have a lovely Tuesday!
