Greetings from Perugia
Hi Troy, it makes me sad that your beautiful collection gets so less visitors! There are many Panoramio users which have not a piece of your talent (and great motives) but thousands of visitors: for me unintelligible.
Where are you, Troy?
Hi Cinthia, it seams that Troy has decided "only" to upload pictures and not longer attend to the active Panoramio community. At the very beginning he was answering but he erased all communication-comments approx. one week ago... At least we can enjoy his wonderful collection!
P.S. Here you can find related images (not from Troy but from the same area).
Sorry about that Herr. I was actually thinking about deleting that photo from my collection, and I accidentally deleted the comments instead. I really do appreciate all of the positive feedback. I've never displayed my photography anywhere (except on my screensaver), so it's nice to hear what other people have to say. It also serves as great motivation to get outside and take some more pictures! Thanks again.
Cinthia, thanks so much for the kind comments. I live in Bend, Oregon (USA), which sits right on the border between high desert and alpine lakes. The whole state of Oregon is really quite amazing. Within a few hours of driving, you can get to just about every kind of scenery imaginable, including a Mars-like landscape (I'll upload a picture from the Painted Hills area), desert rock formations, glacier-capped mountains, rainforest, rolling farmland, and rugged coastline. I absolutely love it here.
Hi Troy, I'm glad to hear that you have made a small mistake only! Your Mars picture (Painted Hills) needs a small modification: replace the blue sky with a red one and then it is really from outer space ;-).
It's funny that you mention the red sky idea for the Painted Hills picture. All of the mountains in our area are actually volcanoes, and in the summer time, the volcanic ash from the mountains will often create amazingly red skies when the sun is low on the horizon. It would be really fun to capture one of those sunsets in the Painted Hills area. I'll give it a try this summer, and let you know how it turns out.
Troy, I really like this new picture (which I presume is from Tumalo Mountain). Be sure to add more photographs when you get them. I like them all!
I'm thinking calendars, postcards, sold at gift shops and such... Occasionally I think I'm a pretty good shot, then I come across photos like yours.
Thanks for the compliment. I noticed that you have lots of great clouds in your portfolio. That's one of the things I hope to work on in the coming months. I've always been drawn to photographs with great light and cloud patterns, but for some reason, I always find myself shooting on clear days. This year, I'm going to try to get out more often when it's cloudy to see if I can capture some interesting patterns like you have done.
Damn! I miss Bachelor! Nice shot.
